. . . thank you for your effort and expert guidance in selling our company. …owned several valve businesses . . . worked with lots of people and done lots of deals . . . three things stuck out as a being as good as I have ever seen . . . work ethic, complete commitment to my success, and skill at your job . . . saw muddy issues clearly . . . gave sound ideas . . . and did not waiver. . . worked quickly to put things in place. Without your deal sense and skills working for us, I have my doubts that our sale would have gotten to a successful close. I will always recommend you and your firm for selling a business, and regard you as a friend.
