    Dr. Jessie Meredith was my anatomy professor and my first year small group facilitator. He used to volunteer at the community care center and on one of the days he was going community care center, he stopped by my family's convenient store, which is located at south side of winston salem. He walked in and grabbed a soda and walked over to the counter. At the counter was my dad, and Dr. Meredith asked my dad if he was my dad. My dad said yes, and Dr. Meredith told him that he was my professor. Of course my dad being an asian dad, he refuse to take money from his son's teacher, so he push the money back to Dr. Meredith and then he pushed it back to my dad.. and this went on for few times, and Dr. Meredith left the money on the counter and went out side... and my dad in his infinite wisdom, goes out to his car and put the money back in his car... finally Dr. Meredith came in and put the money on the counter and got in his car and drove off before my dad can return the money to him.... I will never forget the talks I had with him, and sharing lunch with him at the cafeteria, and the talk we had about life of a surgeon. It was a happiest moments in my life, and I was truly privileged to have met him and known him.

    Hello. I am trying to find information on the Swamp Girl painting. I have a framed oil (possible oiliograph?) on canvas. The painting itself is roughly 28" x 22". There is a Vinciata signature on the bottom left corner. The painting appears to be varnished and is therefore difficult to tell if there are brush strokes. This painting belonged to my late boyfriends father, who had told his son that this was a valuable painting which he had purchased in the early '60s. It was handed down to my boyfriend about 14 years ago when his father passed away. I can't seem to find out much at all about the painting. Any info about it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Candice

    Hello, I am researching an old painting by Edith Saunders, who was married to Zeke Saunders of Piedmont Airlines. I have a friend who is close to Dorothy Reynolds and he forwarded a pic of the painting to her and she believes it quite possibly to be of "Blitz" Edith McCaw Dillard Reynolds. Is there someone I could forward a pic to so I may be able to get more information on the painting? Thank You, Rhonda Banner
