I moved to Old Town in 1989 and still had my college furniture and no art on my walls. I wondered in to Lenore's shop one day and bought two Vanity Fair caricatures. That one encounter led to years of visits to the shop. Lenore was as valuable as any trinket or treasure that ever caught my eye or wallet over the years!

My love of art and my travels around the globe pursuing it began right there that day in Lenore's shop. What a privilege it was to have known her.

We are so glad to have met Lenore after Randy and Tennie moved to Spencer. Right away it was evident that she was a great lady and had such a positive influence on her family. We hope the memories carry you through the tough days ahead and give you comfort. Curt and Sam Geyer
