Mother opening the box, she was in tears

Karen Moody and the Bolander Girls
Gary, I apologize for not writing sooner, but I wanted to wait until my photos were developed to share some of them with you. As you can see from the photo of my Mother opening the box, she was in tears when she saw how beautiful the doll was due to your extraordinary workmanship. You restored the doll in such a marvelous manner that my mother thought we had purchased a new doll. When we showed the doll to my 95 year old grandmother (photos later), the original owner of the doll, she just kept stroking her face and hair in disbelief. She too could not believe that it was the original doll and was almost giddy when she saw the doll's eyes open and close again. She explained that the eyes were plastered in place after her brother had poked the doll's eyes out in a childhood spat. As I had mentioned before, the hair for the doll's wig was from my greatgrandmother. Everyday when she brushed her long hair, she would remove the hair from her brush and place it in a bag until she had enough to make the wig. Just a little history! Gary, from the bottom of our hearts, we want to thank you for making both of these moments so memorable -- they were truly priceless. Thank you!! Karen Moody and the Bolander Girls
