George, God has truly blessed you with a gift that transcends understanding. Don't for one moment think that it doesn't go far beyond the physical item. My Mom told the Hospice team to move a couch, two chairs, a table and a lamp out of the house and set her hospital be up against her living room wall directly under the picture you painted for us from a photo we had taken together. She said numerous times that by looking at the painting it made her feel close to her family in North Carolina. We brought her out on several trips in her final year and a half to visit as many lighthouses as she could. She went to be with the Lord last week and have a pain free everlasting life with Him. As I went to see her just days before she passed, she made it a point to tell me how much comfort your painting continued to give her. No monetary amount or physical gift can match the blessing your gift gave my Mother. "Satisfied customer" is an understatement (see Lighthouse NC.jpg in that section of this website). God Bless You George. -Ross
