All received. Thank you. It's been a pleasure to do business with you. Kristi Indiantown FL 34956 Florida.

I've just listened to the CD [audio tape reel to CD and mp3 on flash drive] and simply have no words to do justice to what you have done for our family. On the tape are my mom's parents, sister, three brothers, several cousin, and dear friends (who are now all gone).   You have made one sad little Irish woman happier than I ever thought I'd see her again. The work you do matters.. My best, Siobhan Bloomington Indiana, IN  47401.

Yes, thank you very much for digitizing my audio reel to mp3 and sending the file via Dropbox. Very good service. Thanks, Mike, Belgium.
