One great reason that Eddie and Bill and Kathy had such full and productive lives was due to Sharon (Bedford) Douglas and her great help to us from her time as an infant. Her husband Dan Douglas stepped forward over 26 years ago since their engagement to add a level of comfort and wonderful activities for Bill and Kathy and me, Ed, firstat their home in Michigan and later when they moved to Rocky River, Ohio! From almost the time they were infants our granddaughters, Zoe age 24, and Lucy age 16 were always there for Bill and Kathy, and me.
When Kathy went to the nursing home when I took ill, Sharon and Dan handled all the financial and bureaucratic details to get Kathy enrolled permanently at Ennis Court. They and Zoe and Lucy visited her there regularly with flowers and games and news of the family. Kathy was taken care of very well there and enjoyed the food and the staff and the fresh flowers inside and outside the home. She was happy there until her transfer to hospice, almost a year later.

Weather and other delays often occur in the Amish and our community, thus we are completely unable to GUARANTEE any delivery. We and they will do our best, but we are not liable in any way for delays, regardless of the cause!
Because hardwood is a natural product, created by nature and then finished by skilled Amish craftsmen, you can expect the usual variations in wood color, stain color, some degree of cherry pits, even in so-called clear cherry (Filled for regular cherry, normally open for Rustic Cherry). Knots vary from minor to major for the Rustic versions of the hardwoods, QSWO, OAK, CHERRY and HICKORY.
Our sizes are nominal and should be correct, but we may also make errors. If a given dimension is critical, please call to let us know that and to confirm the dimensions. Differences of an inch or so are not errors, but just the result of the hand made process as practiced by the Amish builders. Thanks!
(CLEAR) CHERRY WILL ALWAYS HAVE DARK VISIBLE STREAKS,
IT IS THE TRUE NATURE OF THE CHERRY HARDWOOD in the U.S.A.
Hardwoods may contain mineral deposits, pits, gum streaks, small pin holes, knots, color differences, unusual grain patterns, darker heart wood, lighter sap wood, etc. However, it is these attributes that comprise the beauty of hardwood furniture. No two items are exact duplicates, and therefore Educational Electronics Inc. makes no representation or guarantee that Customer's furniture will appear exactly as another.
