Pay It Forward

My wife, Linda, recently flew to Denver to visit her sister. She was thankful to have enough points to be seated in first class when she saw an elderly gentleman and his son board the plane. Without a thought, she gave up her seat and took his place in coach without knowing of the gentleman’s service in WWII under Patton. A stranger seated across the aisle saw her gesture and offered her seat to his son so that they could sit together. In a world where shouts of anger echo, may we all listen for these whispers of good. -Bob Lee

Customer Testimonial

August 1, 2017 Plumbers Don & Rob repiped my house last week and did a terrific job. My house had the original pipes and they ran into a few challenges along the way, but they were able to solve those problems with skill, patience and good humor. Everything (pipes, fixtures, etc.) look great now and, more importantly, works great, too. I highly recommend Lee.
