"We couldn't wait to review our home movies!  They are outstanding quality and done so well.  I started crying as we watched our children when they were so young.  Thank you so very much for bringing these memories back to us.   -RB"   Baton Rouge, LA

"Meeting Boni was a true God send! I have been putting off transferring my old VHS tapes for YEARS! After putting my tapes together, asking everyone on Facebook where to go, and getting basically nowhere, I found Boni just a hop, skip, and a jump from me! She cares about YOUR memories as much as YOU DO - YES! Believe it!!! What an awesome lady with a heart as big as gold. She loves what she does and it shows. I can't thank Boni enough for the tapes she has done for us already. We are STILL finding things that we need her to do for us but while we are waiting, we are LOVING what she put together already. A true professional! SUPER fast, SUPER sweet, and a PRICELESS experience! Don't put this off any longer if you're thinking about doing it. Thank you, Boni!" -Toni, New Orleans, LA

"I just had to write you to tell you how much these videos mean to me. You did an AMAZING job with the film & I LOVE the music!!! Perfect! I enjoyed the Cedotal Video as much as the Theriot one. I could recognize my mom and younger kids and aunts and uncles I only knew as way older; the music was spot on! This is such a treasure. Thank you for the beautiful memories.    Hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas! -Tammy"  Houma, LA

 "Hey … just to mention that I did watch the video of us in Germany when I got home … sure did bring back a LOT of memories… your business name fits what you do!!!! You did an excellent job… everything from picking up the video and talking to you, to watching it and sharing it.…   Thanks a million…great job… All the best…" -“Siggy” Laplace, LA 

"I am thoroughly pleased with the end result of my 36 reel compendium on DVDs.  You did an excellent job and I am telling everyone about you.  Best wishes for a successful 2016. -Bruce"   Mandeville, LA

 "OMG!  You have no idea how happy I am with the video.  There are tons of memories on this dvd that I had totally forgotten about.   The original VHS tapes that you restored to dvd sat in Katrina water for 2 weeks and then in my garage for 8 years!!!  You did a terrific job in giving something back to us that we thought was lost forever. May God richly bless you, your family and your business. -Jim"  New Orleans, LA 

"I just wanted to tell you how very pleased my brother and I are with the work you did converting our old 8 MM film to digital. My father started shooting 8 mm film several years before he and mother were married. Some of the film my brothers and I had never seen as the film was lost for a number of years. The film labeled First film was taken several years before my brother and I were born and we have never seen our grandfather who died before we were born. It was amazing after 70 years to finally see him on film.    We are in the process of sharing these treasures with other family members. These DVDs will be treasured by our family for years to come.   It was a real pleasure doing business with people who really care about what the are doing and do a GREAT JOB ! ! ! ! Thank you so very very much ! ! !   Have a GREAT DAY ! ! ! -Charles"  Baton Rouge, LA

"Last night I watched the home movies-not sure if I laughed or cried more!  Thank you so much for doing such a fabulous job of transerring the film for me.  I will definitely recommend you to all my friends!  Thanks again,  -Yvonne"  Metairie, LA

"Thank you for recapturing 11:56 of my past! After more than 30 years, I had nearly forgotten the gags and scenes in our film, but thanks to you I can share our little comedy with friends and family. (So good to see my dad and dog, Joe, again!) You provide a valuable service, and I can tell it is a rewarding job for you. I will recommend Memory Lane to everyone I know, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.  Best,  -David" Harvey, LA

"Thank you for your expertise.  You did such a good job!  I will send you more jobs in the future if I can.  I recognized people from before I was born in 1955 that were friends of my parents.  It turned out better than I could have imagined.  The intro was beautiful too. Thanks again,   -Jamie"  Metairie, LA

"Thanks for sharing my family with me!! I've shed many tears and laughed till my face hurt while watching those precious movies. You did a wonderful job. You not only provided a service, but you took personal interest and treated my movies (8mm films) as though they were your own.  Thanks again! -Mike" Metairie, LA

 "The only taped record of my son and daughter in law's wedding was on an old Hi-8 tape, from a camera which no longer works.  On top of that, part of it was taped over.  Memory Lane rescued it and made it into the best present ever for my daughter in law's birthday.  It contained family members who are no longer with us, making it even more special.  They were fast, efficient, and so nice to work with.  I recommend them highly. -Pat" Baton Rouge, LA 

"Thank you for making my family movies. My family was so happy to see the beautiful DVD and there was lots laughs and tears and 'look at us' and 'look at them' and 'boy we sure look good'. The grandchildren loved to see their mom and dad when they were young and are looking forward to seeing the new DVD when they were young. You certainly do provide a wonderful service and I have always wanted to do this. So thank you for all you do to preserve our memories.  Sincerely,   -The Berthelot Family"  Westwego, LA

"Just wanted to let you know that my mom was thrilled with the DVDs.  When she opened her package Christmas morning, it took her a couple of seconds to figure out what she had.  Big tears began to fall down her cheeks.  We watched both DVDs later that day and we had a wonderful time.  Mother was so thrilled to see people from her past--people she has been out of touch with for many years and of course, some who have passed away.  Everyone was very happy with our video. -Sherrie" Kenner, LA

"Just wanted to send you a little note to thank you for the work you did on our family reels the quality was excellent, actually much better than I had imagined. And everyone I sent a DVD to was very excited to get them and very pleased with the work you’ve done. I will recommend Memory Lane to anyone I know who wants to have their reels converted to digital. Thank you. -Paul" Marrero, LA

"Hi!   A note about the Christmas present (8mm reels to DVD) for my sons. They enjoyed seeing their Dad and the rest of the family that is deceased (grandparents & great grandparents). They put the DVD on at our Christmas get together and it was really a special time for not only my sons but their children as well. My husband died before my grandchildren were born so they got to see their grandfather! Even my grandparents were on the DVD. Which makes them my sons' great grandparents & my grandchildren's great great grandparents!" -Beth  Metairie, LA

"Thank you for the memories you saved for us.  My husband and his family really enjoyed the movies.  He was speechless.  I'm so glad I found your article in the newspaper.  I will tell everyone I can about how good you are at preserving old memories.   -Vicki"  Marrero, LA

 My Mom and Dad loved the videos. We were all very pleased with the way it turned out. My mother will be coming to get the rest of our 8mm reels done soon. Thanks again for doing a wonderful and speedy job. -Michelle"  St. Rose, LA 

"There are not enough words to express to you how much I appreciate the beautiful effort you put into making my 2 DVDs!  My sisters and I cried so hard seeing our mother & brother & my son in these movies - You Nailed the music to each segment!!!  The emotions with the music -the things that were going on in our lives - well - it was sooo good!  When I find the other reels, I will contact you again.  I will pass your name & business around to my family & friends!  So watch out, you are going to be busy! -Maxie"  Metairie, LA

"My husband is in love with his  DVD (of transferred 8mm films). That is still the topic of conversation everyday. I think that was the best  gift I ever gave him. I'll be getting in touch with you later about the other ones. Thanks again for a great job.   -Gladys" Marrero, LA

"For Father's Day (and a late Mother's Day) I had my mom's old super 8mm films converted into dvds by Memory Lane. She was very helpful and professional. If you need this work done or know someone else who does- give Memory Lane an email or call.  My family & I were very happy with the results!! It was exciting to watch me as a 3 year old feeding my little sister--and on dvd!! Even my children enjoyed watching my brothers and sister water-skiing in the Spillway!  -Carol" Destrehan, LA

"For Christmas we decided to surprise our grown children with our family's home movies put on DVD.  The final product was very well done and enjoyed by all.  What made it more special is how personal and friendly the staff person at Memory Lane treated us.  I'll refer my friends there!" -Madeleine"  Waggaman, LA

"I want to thank you for the great job that you did transferring my old Super 8 movies to DVDs. Your professional and friendly approach in working with your customers is exceptional. The quality of the transferred movies far exceeded my expectation. It was nice to be able to watch the old movies of my children without the jumping that was normal for the old Super 8 movies. I can't wait to give the DVD's to my grown children as a keep sake that they can share with their children. Thanks again for the great job and if anyone of your future customers would like to talk with me about you work, please feel free to give them my phone number.  -Gary"   Metairie, LA

 "Creative, professional, cost effective and a pleasure to work with", that's how I describe Memory Lane. I had 80 pictures of my wife and myself as we were dating, our wedding and then the birth of our son scanned to a DVD as a slideshow. In addition, Memory Lane transferred our wedding video from VHS to DVD and then encompassed parts in to the DVD slideshow. The transition from scanned pictures to video clips and back to scanned pictures were smooth and seamless. The added background music just added a special touch. We were so pleased that I'm going to let Memory Lane scan my Mom's old pictures of her and her siblings' childhood and give the DVD slideshow as a Mother's Day gift. -The Kennedys"  Montz, LA 

"I sent Memory Lane over 40 tapes from old video cameras that I no longer had a way to play and within a week they were back in my hands, organized in chronological order, giving me hours and hours and hours of pleasure from past memories. I never realized how beautiful and fun-loving my child was until I watched them eight years after they were recorded. Memory Lane, I owe you so much for restoring my memories. I can not imagine anyone else taking the time and putting forth the effort to organize and restore my memories as if they were their own. Thank you so much!  -Steve"

"We watched the DVDs and laughed until our sides almost burst. There were also more serious moments when we realized how grateful we are to have these DVDs.   Thank you again for giving us back our family, when we were all younger and thinner. Without you and the blessings of God, they could have been lost forever. -The Hebert Family"   Slidell, LA

"You did a great job on the transfers and you are an absolute pleasure to work with. -Claire"   Metairie, LA

"Thank you so MUCH for the great work and fast turnaround!  It was just fantastic and I'll definitely pass your name around to anyone who might have a need for this type of thing.  Thanks again! -Jennifer"  Deerfield, IL

"I looked at the DVD on Saturday! It was beautiful, so many memories.   Thanks so much for such a great job. -Susan"   Arabi, LA
