We are unbelievably grateful for the video that Family Legacy Video® created for my father’s ninetieth birthday. My husband and I have commented that giving Dad the video history of his fascinating life is among the most important things we have ever done – for us, for him and for our children. We were truly overwhelmed at the quality of what you produced. From the careful creation of the questions you used to evoke Dad’s fondest memories and deepest emotions, to the amazing selection of maps, pictures, music and information you included, the video was worthy of the History channel or National Geographic! Dad, with tears, could not stop thanking us for this gift. He has had a need to tell his story for years; after watching the video, he was radiant with pride and satisfaction. We feel that his legacy has been captured for generations to come and that we could not have given him a more meaningful gift. In every way, this has turned out to be a wonderful experience for us, for Dad and for our entire extended family.
