Thank you everyone for the wonderful comments and emails on this piece. And a special thank you to Watkins Museum and the people that attended the current exhibition. It's a true honor to be exhibiting beside such historical artists as Ernst Ulmer, and because this is such a personal story all the more special to me. --Mary Ellen Anderson

Congratulations on your feature, that is a very poignant story, kids had it tought back then. So much drama and you rendered it to life real good, I love the colors and mood it sets to the piece. You narrating the events and acknowledging being one of his descendants brings the story home and makes it event more valuable. Thanks for sharing that part of history. VF
