Comment on Sculpture:
"It was great to meet you and Rosalie at the event in Pinehurst last week. The bronze of Payne is very special and your talent is evident. Thank you for your patience and perseverance to get the statue just right. Your part in making this memorial to Payne so exceptional is very much appreciated."

"Thank you for doing such a tremendous job in the creation of the Payne Stewart statue. I know that this endeavor was not an easy one, with the limited resources we provided you, but I will echo the feelings of many that the statue looks incredible. For years to come, it will be an ongoing tribute to “One Moment In Time” of June 1999. I hope we can work together again."
