That's a direct quote from a flyer put out by Network Sound And Video, owned and run by VITO and RHONDA FERA...and it is very, very true! Recently, I took the video of my courtship and marriage to Irv covering 54 years. (I met him when I was 8!), films and slides when our children were little, our trip to Israel, and other vaca- tions, beach, etc., to Network Sound And Video in Longwood, to be put together in some fashion as a DVD. The work that Vito and Rhonda did with all my recorded memories, etc. were just brilliant. I ordered four DVDs, one for me and Irv and one for each of our three sons. Just think, when we are long gone from this life, our grand- children, great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren can see what we were like (beautiful and slim) when we were young. (Shut up!) Vito, Rhonda and their talented employees at Network Sound And Video, also film, design and create CDs...and many, many other valuable and memorable videos, etc. (My latest project is to have Vito and Rhonda make copies of one of my CDs "Just Breezin' At Full Sail," as I was the first professional entertainer to ever record there way back when the now famous school was just beginning. I also have many videos of performances with the Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra that they will put onto a DVD.
