"I just wanted to write to say thank you for the wonderful job you did playing the guitar for our ceremony on 7th April. We thoroughly enjoyed the music that you played and we had wonderful comments about how beautifully the music seemed to match the intimacy of the church and how unique and unusual it was. For me, the music was a real nod to and acknowledgment of my dad, and although he's no longer with us, I felt that he was present in your beautiful music. His brothers also commented on how much they enjoyed listening to you play. It was really uplifting and positive. Thank you also for the gift of CDs that you gave us, what a wonderful way for us to remember your music! We will certainly be recommending you to any of our friends and family who need a guitarist in future."
