A touching phone call


I received a phone call yesterday from a woman who had recently received her restored photos. She was so impressed with the quality of the restorations, and so touched by the generous gift that Operation Photo Rescue had given her. These were very special photos to her, and she said it was hard to even take them out of the envelope and look at them the first day, because she would become too emotional to look at them. Despite Hurricane Katrina being 2 years and 7 months ago, her life is still in chaos, and these photos brought back a sense of normalcy for her.

  1. I have seen the look on my husband’s face when a slide or picture he thought was lost forever is restored. It is overwhelming. I love doing this. It is my passion and as I am sure that it is yours. I hope to work with you guys in the future. I would love to take my passion and talent and work with OPR, giving people back treasures to last a life time.

    God bless you all. The world is certainly blessed by the work you all are doing.

    I lost everything in Hurricane Katrina, and I see several of my photos in your gallery. I enjoy looking at them so much and can’t wait to receive mine! You all have done a wonderful job and are doing such a wonderful service. When you have nothing left, and especially when people are no longer with us, these pictures mean so much. I can’t thank you enough. MAry Barrale Long Beach,MS
