    OMG, what a wonderful thing, and it’s great you have such a superb picture of it! Nice to have it so close to your home!

  • My father died of a heart attack back in the 80s. He was only 52 years old. He was a wonderful masonry contractor and built many fabulous things around our hometown!! I still miss him.
