This is a letter I received from Maurice after I had carried out some work and the story behind his photographs
“I was delighted with the work you did for me. You took old faded, a bit ragged looking photos, some showing cracks, and restored them to original condition. Your manipulation, to achieve a full length photo showing only my late wife, from two separate group photos, was unbelievable. I get the feeling that if it can be done, you have the skill and the patience to do it.
There is a saying, “Love the work you do and you will never work again”. I suspect this applies to you. I assume most people having photos restored, are rekindling memories, or trying to extend memories, and the fact that you can help them do that must give you great satisfaction.
My reason? My first wife, the mother of my four sons, died 1981. My second wife died 2015, I was married for approximately 30 years to each of them. Two very special ladies. I feel like I have had two lives. So photos have been resurrected and restored, and photos have been enhanced, and thanks to you are now on display. Thanks once again Richard, I wish you well for the future. Yours sincerely Maurice.”
