    When I took this business over, I knew it strictly from a production standpoint, nothing about the record-keeping or accounting. Gary guided me through the process and explained how things work. He’s knowledgeable and detail-oriented and has always been available to answer my questions.

    Gary is the most incredibly conscientious person I have ever met. He’s customer-service-oriented, practical, completely trustworthy. If he says we should handle our record-keeping a certain way, then that’s the way to go.
