Gary,

Yes, it was delivered yesterday afternoon by Motor Cargo. Everything went fine as far as delivery and condition.

The rocker is wonderful, truly a work of art. And the minute I sat in it, it was comfortable, a perfect fit with everything supported, and a lovely rock. I was delighted with the curve in the arms, the way you can put your elbows off the end of the arm and not have any pressure on the elbow to make your arms "go to sleep". (By design or accident, a great feature).

My husband was also very pleased with the beauty and comfort of the rocker. I suspect we will have to take turns with "my" rocker.

Thank you so much!

Gary,

Thanks to your efforts, I took delivery of your gorgeous chair today at 11:30. My wife was thrilled. I will send a picture of her enjoying it with baby E. when I can.

Thank you once again. I found dealing with you to be refreshing. Your service was polite, timely and accommodating. I only look forward to discovering for myself how comfortable the chair is.

Gary,

My name is K. (A.M.’s wife) I live in Vancouver, Canada. I am a new mum and my husband surprised me with the gift of a Weeks Rocking Chair on July 4th. He said you took great pains to make sure we got the chair as soon as possible. I wanted to let you know that it is the most comfy chair that I have ever sat in. Our baby E. loves to be rocked in it — it seems to sooth her as soon as I begin rocking. I just wanted to say thank you for designing such a beautiful and comfortable piece of furniture.

Sincerely,

K.M.

Briefly, the rocker arrived in perfect condition, and the delivery man from Overnite was perhaps the most pleasant and courteous I've come across in years. The crate was a pleasure in itself to "unwrap."

My wife was thrilled with the rocker, and used it last evening to rock (of course!) the baby to sleep. Did I mention that R. and I have a 7 month, and a 23 month old sons? More to follow, we hope. I often comment to those professionals whom I refer business, that when they look good, I look good. Let's say that your rocker made me look really good!

To conclude, the rocker is magnificent.

Best regards,
D.M.

The rocker was great. The party was great. The retiree really liked it. I am getting a photo scanned to send to you so you can see his big smile. Thanks for everything. The shipping was fine, everything arrived ok.

Hi Gary,

Further to my earlier message of congratulations, it is indeed a great day when the Weeks Rocker makes it to its third continent. I'm as proud of that as you all are, I'm sure. I'll be looking forward to updates on your website, if you plan to include Oz. At least your map at home will need to expand somewhat!

I had to go to work just after sending the earlier message, but since I've got home — well, you know what the focus has been!! I've looked at it from every angle and admired the grain orientation and juxtaposition, and the vast difference in such between the top and the bottom of the seat. Wow, what attention to detail you have!

Of course I've been rocking plenty, but have to get up regularly just to look at and admire it, then I can sit down again and appreciate the shapes.

I look forward to introducing your work of art to my visitors, the first of whom comes tomorrow bearing my stools is one of my five brothers. As yet I've not told any of them about the purchase, so it will be a pleasant surprise.

Looks like I'll be wiring the balance of US$1100 on Monday our time, so please let me know if you don't get it by the end of next week.

And I must thank you also for the ingenious construction of the crate the rocker arrived in and the degree of wrap. Very light and simple to use. Thanks also for the catalogues and letter accompanying the chair. Indeed, the chair does speak for itself.

Regards,
G.M.

Gary,

I want to thank you so much for your efforts on Tuesday. It was very nice of you to do what you did with the calls. Please thank those people who allowed me their chair.

It made the perfect gift for my brother. He absolutely loved it! I appreciate all you've done.

Please take care,

Dear Mr. Weeks,

I wanted to write to you in order to thank you for sending us a check for the carpet cleaning that had to be done after delivery of our rocking chair. While, I believe it was the shipping company's fault for the damage, it is very refreshing to be able to do business with someone who is willing to take responsibility for mistakes that were made.

We absolutely love our rocking chair and we know that we will love it even more in the years to come. We look forward to doing business with you in the future and we will not hesitate to do so.

Thank you again for everything.

Best regards,
S.F.

Jack,

I know we aren't supposed to treasure things, but the rocking chair must be an exception. The walnut is just incredible. Thank you very much for picking it out, delivering it, and of course, helping in its construction. Please give my deepest thanks to Gary for making this possible. I can't imagine there being a better rocker made in the whole world. Tell him that he must pass the skill on. One or both of his boys must continue this out.
