Help this Steinway piano’s restoration effort

Hello. My late father’s Steinway piano, completed in 1889 is in need of being restored to all its glory. It belonged to my late father, well known Detroit jazz musician, Ed Nuccilli. This piano was used for his life’s work for over 45 years. It has been sitting in storage for the past 3 years, because it is too large to fit in my home.
This very particular and time consuming craft, and specially made parts make it a very costly job. Mr Richard Bittner of the Piano Place has been restoring pianos for nearly 30 years, and specializes in Steinways, and he appreciates the instrument as much as I do! He feels he can bring this piano back to life! I would love to hear the piano played once again, and for 100 more years to come! It is such a costly dream, but I feel I owe it to my dad. He is thrilled up in heaven to know that this may be a dream come true.$7,000 will cover about half of the cost. The work is underway. Thank you my music lovers!
