We arrived home last night about 10:00 pm, tired, but with smiles on our faces. Everything went very well - took very good care of us. We greatly appreciate everything you did for us. The arrangements were perfect. Once I get my head cleared from the travel home I will write a letter of recommendation for you to have on file for further client possibilities.Thanks again, Richard and Linda.
