It is important that we let you know about the people we are fortunate enough to work with . . . and who help us to serve you. They come from different backgrounds and are at different stations in life. But it is what they have in common that matters most. Each is a genuinely good and honorable person who cares about helping others and works hard to do his/her job well. That is the bond that makes us a team. We and you have seen the difference between people simply working to earn a paycheck, and those who do what they do -- the way they do it -- because they care about people. These good people care and I am lucky to have them on my team. - Steve Wright
