Hi Guy,
For weeks, I've been meaning to pen a letter of congratulations and appreciation to you, but I'd better give you the drift before I get much older.

Our yard looks the best ever, thanks to you and your team. I especially appreciate how you got our lawn off the sick list, but equally important, the fall cleanup was excellent. Here I give special credit to the young man you sent to do our routine pruning. Magnificent. The best ever. I hate to say it, but he did a better job than I used to do (but it took me forever to do it). And the sweet peat, was, so to speak, the icing on the cake. Our neighbors are green with envy (I imagine).

Thank you for masterful work, and happy new year!

Best, Merrell
