    Hello, Sheryl! I have purchased your book “A Land in the Storytelling Sea” to take with me to Malta to give as a gift to friends who were married in Malta and now are returning to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. I think it would be even more special if it were inscribed. Is there any chance that you would be able to sign it for them? Keeping my fingers crossed!

    1. I’d be happy to inscribe it, Kim. I’ll be in contact this later morning.

    Hello, Sheryl!
    Years ago, anniversary of Bach’s birthday actually, I took music lessons from you at the Presbyterian Church in Cambridge, ON. I’ve forgotten the now the name of the Church. It was a lovely old four manual.
    I have come a long way musically since then, and at the tender age of 46 got my first post as organist.
    I saw your name on a CBC production once upon a time.
    I’m glad I remembered you name.
    Fond Regards,
    Kenneth Finlayson

    1. Very happy to hear from you, Ken! I’ll be in touch.
