Dear Dale and Kathy,
The bride and groom just opened their cedar chest today. They were astonished at the excellent craftsmanship and the beauty of it. After seeing it for the first time, I knew immediately that I made the right decision with this purchase. Your company can be very proud of the products that it manufactures. I will have absolutely no reservations about directing people to your web site, so that they may do some browsing on their own. Words cannot express my deep feeling of thanks for helping to make this special day, even a little more special. Thank You. J. McNeil, Cass City, MI

Dear Kathy and Dale,
This is Daisy McLaughlin the recipient of the beautiful cedar chest. I just wanted to let you know how much I love it. I started my search for a cedar chest at the end of June after the passing of my mother. Due to a fire when I was younger, our family does not have a lot in the way of heirlooms, so what I had from my mother I wanted to perserve for my son . I started my search on the internet and then in the major department stores, I was in for quite a suprise, there were so many and many of them were ridicously priced. I had about given up finding one, when Jerry found your website and the cedar chest that he bought. When we finally got the perfect one, I started to cry because it was just what I wanted and it is very beautiful. I just wanted to say thank you. Sincerely, D. McLaughlin, Alexandria, VA
I wanted to let you kow I received my cedar chest Wednesday. It arrived in wonderful condition and I'm so pleased with it. It is just beautiful. The finish and the woodies go so well with my furniture. I'll check your web page periodically to see what else comes up that I'm interested in and I'll let my friends know about your chests and how beautiful they are. Thank you so much. S. Westerman, Irving, TX
Dear Cedaridge Farm,
I received my cedar chest yesterday dec.22. It is very beautiful. I just want to say thanks for the fine workmanship. I hope everyone in your family has a merry christmas! L. Ancell, Sistersville, WV thanks again
Dear Dale and Kathy:
Just wanted to let you know what a hit the cedar chest was for my nephew and his future bride. They opened it at the wedding shower and were totally thrilled! It was a good thing it was the last gift opened because the two of them spent so much time opening and closing the lid, inspecting the 'beautiful wood' and 'teriffic craftsmanship'. It was truly the best gift we could have given them. Aricia's father is a wood worker also - he builds custome cupolas - so he was duly impressed with your creation.If you ever need a reference for you work, please don't hesitate to send them my way. The quality of the product is excellent and the whole experience of dealing with both of you was very pleasant.Thanks for helping make our gift one that will be cherished for years. Yours truly, J. & P. Nelson, Menominee, MI
