    Brad, The safe was finally delivered to the recipients today and of course they were quite pleased. It took a while but that is to be expected. I was not at the delivery site to see the unit as delivered but was told by those that were that you did an outstanding job of packaging. The safe did not have a scratch on it. The devil is in the details and you and your organization did a fine job on those details. It’s been a pleasure doing business with you. John PS: On the subject of details, I received the sales invoice in the mail as requested.
