    I helped disassemble the organ from Fall River, with 2 choir boys, and Paul, and moved it to St Jacques, Taunton, and helped set it up just as it was in Fall River. It fit perfectly in the choir loft as though it was meant to be. Attended the rededication concert to a full church. With very good acoustics of the church, the organ sounded like a "million dollars" (Steven E. Lawson. July 3, 2018)
