I didn't hear back from his parents until this week because they have been helping his sister, Angela, who lives in Boise, Idaho. She is having a difficult time with the loss of her big brother. The package sat OUTSIDE (blizzard,snow and rain) for almost 4 months and Brian's mom said she thought "someone" was watching over my precious gift. She said they cried when they opened it and smile whenever they see it in their bedroom. I'm so glad and proud that she could see that I put a lot of my heart into the painting and that it pleased them as much as it has.
