    Dear Russ, nice family bio – great family. I have enjoyed working with you on two roofs in the past. I am thinking of getting gutter screens attached – befire I hire some company I don’t know, I thought I would inquire whether your company did that work. Let me know. Best to you and your great family. Go Chiefs!
