Dear Aunt Vicki & family,
I want to convey my condolences to all of you at this sad time. It has been a long time since I've seen any of you, but I have such good memories of family visits at your home. My thoughts are with you.

Subject: Mr. Thomas "Tom" ConCannon wood sculpture "relief type" - sited in Dayton, Ohio, USA : zip 45405 vicinity
MESSAGE: Dear Ladies & Gentleman (wood carvers all ). My name is Susan [Cassady]-Neuhart. I am an American citizen. I attend a Christian church (in Dayton, Ohio, USA). In that church - mounted on the narthex wall - is a wood carving - titled "The Acceptance". There is a plaque - mounted next to the wood relief carving - which provides some scant information about the art work.
I am seeking more biographical information - about the artist: (Who he was? Where he went? etc.) My Internet search has yielded clues - and indicators only. The work appears to be after the Jamaican Style [ of “Mr. Conard Stone]. In fact, many persons - with the name of "Thomas Concannon" are famous in America (and around the world) – for various reasons. I am contacting those that I can. Any information- related to this work of art - that you can provide- will be appreciated.
Now, I used my digital camera - and, obtained the Shiloh UCC church Pastor's permission - to take photos of this very large wood carving (over five feet in height [ 1.524 meters] ). These photos are posted on my personal web site PAGE for Mr. Concannon: http://hansandcassady.org/Concannon.html
Please NOTE: I do not sell anything on my “personal” web site. Nor, do I use "cookies", etc. That is, I am just a (now) retired person - interested in solving this mystery - regarding “Who" – the Wood Carver (Mr. Tom Concannon ) was? And, "why" did he create this "living memorial"? What was its purpose? That is, there are many people named "James Burnett" – in America - (also).
I look forward to your reply.
And, regards - from (the) United States of America - Susan
