Marc, Kevin byrd here and Nora was my mother we met you in Newnan about doing this painting. My mom has just passed away and she had this on her wall for all to see she was very pleased with this painting. Now I have it on my wall were it will stay till I leave this world and it will be passed down to my grandson. Thanks so much for the memory.

Artist Reply: Hi Kevin, We were so sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. She was a grand lady and it was an honor to have captured one of her wonderful exploits on canvas. You should be justifiably proud of her many accomplishments. With Sympathy, Marc and Robin
