I know you hear this a lot, but I want you to know that I am so thankful for your expertise and first-class service. Knowing that you have my back is a great feeling, especially in a very competitive business such as ours. My son will take over our business in a few years, and I am convinced that he will be even more successful than I have been, because he has SMS to help him navigate the many changes and challenges that come with the senior market. Thank you, SMS, for being a part of our lives.
