About five years ago, the 8mm film of my parents' wedding finally surfaced. At that stage they had been married for about 48 years. We always knew a film existed but it was only five years ago that we found it. Two years later, it was great to have those wonderful scenes for my parents' 50th wedding anniversary.

One week ago today was my father's funeral. We made a photo tribute which was played during the ceremony and which featured the 8mm wedding footage.

Regarding the conversion, I had it done by a local company here in Melbourne. They converted it to DVD and also a tape master copy. They did a great job and the price was very reasonable.

Never underestimate the power of those old memories. In our case, they certainly helped give a picture of my Dad's life for his funeral.
