Good Morning Jan and Anna: It is Friday morning about 6:00 am and I was led to write you a short note. I was in your shop on Monday Oct 15th and you fixed my old violin within a few hours. I look at it now and it is so nice. I pick it up and turn my music on and begin to play. I am still talking about my visit to your shop. I will be leaving tonight for North Carolina for a week. I thank you for your kindness and you patience. Thank you also for the case and the bow. I am taking it with me along with my other instruments to the mountains. I am looking forward to sitting on the back porch and playing to the birds.

Thanks for all your help.
