S. Currin says he had this framed to celebrate a new chapter in life... new start, new painting.
Charles J. "Sonny" says, " I was very touched when My wife, Anne, had my mother's personally autographed pictures from president John F. Kennedy and vice-president Lyndon B. Johnson framed by Sherry at "Yesterday and Today Frame Shop".
My mom, Dorothy Cassell, was one of the original "WWII G-girls", those women who had been recruited out of college early in World War II, to go to work for the United States Government Department of War in Washington, DC. Naturally my mom, being the youngest child from a family of first generation naturalized American citizens of German decent, was quite proud of her thirty eight year career in Government Service. And she always felt especially rewarded from her time as a member of the permanent White House secretarial staff in the 1960's. My Mom had applied to, and was selected to join, the White House staff with the newly incoming administration of John F. Kennedy in 1961, And she was there on the fateful day of November 22, 1963, when president Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas Texas. A teenager then, I remember her receiving a phone call in the early morning of November 24 at about 3:00 A.M. asking her to come to The White House immediately in order to help make arrangements for vice president Lyndon Johnson's formal meeting of the body of JFK at Andrews AFB in Virginia, when it was flown back to Washington DC from Texas. So for me, It's the remembrances of profound events in American history like those, along with many other more personal ones, that have now been so very expertly framed and preserved by Sherry and her staff at the "Yesterday and Today Frame Shop" in Hillsborough, North Carolina.
