His email was in response to our especially assigned drawing of Freedom of the Seas, which our Volunteers @ Sea, Sue & Shelia took aboard with them during their annual family cruise in October 2011.
It was hoped that Sue & Shelia would have the opportunity to meet with Captain Rob Hempstead to present the drawing on behalf of Dream Designs Colchester.
" Your generosity and thoughtfulness is amazing and I am honored and humbled to have received this special gift from you. I have since had the drawing professionally framed, which I received back from the frame shop just a few days ago, and it looks fantastic. "
" It was an unusual job for this frame shop to do such a long (7 feet) framing so it took a while longer than normal. I will try to find a place on board to have it displayed if at all possible. Getting it back to the ship will be a delicate operation as well, as now that it is framed it is quite fragile. Since we no longer have an art auctioneer on board the ability to have had it framed onboard was not an option."
" It was a really wonderful surprise to receive the email from Captain Rob Hempstead last week, in repsone to our drawing of Freedom of the Seas which was presented to him in October 2011."
" I was absolutely delighted to read how pleased the Captain was with our drawing and further more that he was kind enough to have our drawing professionally framed! "
