We often say we are as much in the memories and heirloom business as we are in the clock restoration business. And strangely, for the number of wonderful letters of appreciation we receive, we don’t normally share them in our blogs. But this one was so well written that we had to post it here to share:
Is on the mantel running now.
That you so carefully polished the clock is yet more ABUNDANT evidence of the pride you take in your work!
I never suspected this clock would be brought back to life, and with such excruciating care. You’re a treasure.
One additional thing that makes this clock special is that my father gave it to my mother on their 10th wedding anniversary – wood is the traditional anniversary gift for 10 years.
Lo and behold, and without knowing my father had done this, I gave my wife a grandmother clock on our 10th anniversary! What symmetry.
Further, <my wife> was born in Waterbury, where Seth Thomas was born. And even the name of the clock, Medbury, is a combination of the town we live in (Medfield) and <my wife’s> birthplace (Waterbury).
And then having the good fortune to find you, who made it all come to life.
This was meant to happen.
