Gary and Steve, once again from start to finish our relationship with you has been a pleasurable experience. The thing that impressed me the most wasn’t the quality of your work (which was exceptional) or the system itself but it was the way you guys went above and beyond. On numerous occasions you would put our needs above your own even if it meant additional or messy work for yourselves.
