Hi Aaron,

Many thanks for your feedback.
We will be more than happy if we get it.
Could you cc to Ron Stein, a president of The Cotrane Home, when you 
introduce us to the owners.

Hi Fuji,

That would be awesome to have these units find a permanent home at The 
Coltrane House!  I have yet to hear back from Peter M. who posted interest 
on list yesterday morning, but if he hasn’t contacted me by tomorrow 
evening I'll contact you off list to put you in touch with the owners.
