    I had about 15 albums of pictures I had taken over 50 years. I was so sick of thinking about them, my son told me to put them in the freezer. Every once and awhile I pull one out and remove some pictures and lay them out to dry. Many of them have mold around the edges but still they’re ok. The most difficult thing for me was throwing out pictures of family members that were beyond rescue including pictures of my Son William who is deceased. As a Catholic it was like throwing old Palm in the garbage. Afterwoulds I thought, maybe I should have burned them. Is it true that there is a limit to free restoration (20) pictures?
