Dang, sorry I missed this. Though I've lived up north for many years I actually helped make the North Carolina a shrine and would have enjoyed the contact and QSL.

As a kid in NC schools we donated nickels and dimes toward the restoration project and got some kind of pin and an admission ticket, as I recall. I never visited her until I was nearly 50.
