The chair I had shipped is a family heirloom. It belonged to my grandparents, and then to my parents. My dad passed on in 2000 and just this July, we lost my Mom, after a 2.5 year battle with lung cancer. Having this beautiful rocking chair means a great deal to me, I was so thrilled that Jeff responded so quicky, at my bid price, and deliverd it safely and timely! I love that the chair has made its way from my Mom's home in FL to ours in MI. Now I can rock away and enjoy fond memories of my both my parents and grandparents, and one day pass it on to my son. thx!
