From our first meeting you and your team have been outstanding. You should be proud of the team of professionals you have assembled. Whether Steve, Chris, Kenny or yourself, each of you has always been responsive, supportive, practical and working towards a solution. While Active did have proposals from others, I do not believe any could support us the way Crystal has.
