    Lauri & Lance;
    Please accept my condolences for your loss of Will. He became a friend of mine like you & Lance after several visits to the shop. You & Will always treated us like family over the last 20 years of our relationship.
    His quality of workmanship was second to none. One time he made us a window seat with the dimensions I gave him but the fit was a bit sloppy.I called Will who came out, looked @ the fit & said, we’ll fix that in a jiffy.
    Believe it or not I was thinking about you good folks the other day wondering if Lance has taken an active part in the business.
    We will be thinking of you during this difficult time.
    May God bless you & Lance.
    Paul & Betsy Bratz
