  1. The gentleman that assisted me in identifying who I was (so wasn’t identity fraud & was me) was very friendly and personable..Its really comforting to know we have people with heart working in such an uncomfortable position such as this..Thank You for your compassion…it was a breath of fresh air considering I wasnt privy to the area and a tad stressed with the new area and construction…Kudos!
