“I am mesmerized. So much to look at. As an art teacher, I tell my students that beauty is everywhere. If you see something intriguing, pick it up, keep it, and eventually the object will let you know why you needed to have it.

How romantic and touching to have such a significant piece of art created in your honour. Al Neil was a lucky man.”
