Bill, this is just horrible, and we are so sorry it happened. What
ever we can do to help you out, you know our number!

And for those of you in Orchidland who may not know Bill, for years
he has always brought us the most unusual and wonderful stones and
helped us out with incredibly flexible terms. And on top of that,
he’s a really, really great guy. We love him a lot. We probably
would not be where we are today if he hadn’t treated us so
wonderfully over the years.
