...we wanted to tell you how impressed we are with the detail of the ship. It's beautiful... Jack took your sketch over to his mother's house ( she is 87 soon ) she took one look and said that's "his" ship. She had a lot of memories that came flooding back.....we are now having her write down her stories to keep along with the painting.
