Dear Jay,


On behalf of Sonshine Preschool, I'd like to take this opportunity to express how very grateful we are for the high-quality job you did laying the rubber mulch in the area under and around our children's playscape. We appreciate so very much the huge part you played in ensuring that the children have an extremely safe and highly enjoyable outdoor play experience.


You certainly went above and beyond in transporting the mulch from where it was stored, and giving of your time and equipment, resulting in a highly professional job. It is one thing to conduct your business with excellence, but your commitment to giving back to your community has made such a difference for the children of our school and their parents, as well as the families of Door of Hope.


Thank you again for your very significant investment in Sonshine Preschool and the health and well-being of the students.



Deborah Somody, Director



Dear Jay,


Just thought I'd write a belated note thanking you for the great job you did at our home. So far, we have only had a couple of rainstorms that tested the system, but I am confident that when a big rain comes, everything will be fine.


Thank you again for the great workmanship.
