"There’s not many pictures of me with my family when we were little, this photograph brought back so many memories from that time. Life was difficult and my sweet gentle mother kept herself together and took care of us. Love the photograph that Faye and Mann Lin from Canvas Art restored for our family, it was restored so well and even managed to enlarge it. My mother was so excited that she immediately wanted to purchase it. It was really touching to see her super excited and truly shocked to see her photograph on the wall. I would like to thank Mann and Faye for this amazing opportunity. My mother’s reaction was priceless..."
