Can I tell you how we feel about Chris? He is the greatest. He goes way beyond the norm. We can't ask for better service and support. Chris has taken the time to teach me additional things to not only help him but us here which cuts the time we need him here to fix something I can do. Not many…

She REALLY picks up things quickly. We are continuously amazed and pleased that we only have to tell her something once and…
