In 1962, when we arrived in Merced, Mr. Syll's Maple Shop was already well established.
We bought quite a few items there over the years, one being a picture that hangs in my living area today. Mr. Syll said it was a reproduction of one in the White House!
I would like for his granddaughter, Christy, to know I raised a glass of grape juice to his memory.
