Hi Kathi
Just wanted to let you know that the desk was delivered to my home yesterday.  
It’s beautiful!  Very pleased with the desk — thank you.  The delivery agents did a great job as well — couldn’t be happier.  After years of watching your website to find the right desk, so pleased to have one.  
Thanks for all of your assistance.
Warm regards  Kevin, Brookline Brookline, Massachusetts, USA
