    Steve,
    I found this Purple Heart while I was searching our family relative, Frank Dobosy. I was impressed that you put together such a beautiful tribute for him. But I was surprised that such an honor as the Purple Heart did not stay in the Dobosy family. Frank was my father-in-law's uncle and I would like to know if I could purchase the heart so that he could keep it in the family? Please let me know what I could do. Thank You.
