Just wanted to let you know that I loved my customer service. Even though I was frustrated that at first I couldn’t seem to get ahold of anyone. I want to apologize for that but when you have been sick for so long, you become impatient.
Kathleen helped me and she was the most wonderful person. She went above and beyond the call of duty. Thank you so much. I look forward to getting my order today and getting started.
