Ms. Smith, it was a pleasure to drop by one of my favorite destinations on the Outer Banks. It is a thrill to see your business thriving still and that you took it over from your parents. I have been enjoying the gallery since the early 1970\'s. I purchased a beautiful and dramatic Dan Dunn painting from you last week. It will soon be on my wall.
