Bling Blinky of TEXAS personally had the pleasure of transacting business with Mr. Brewer at his local ROWLETT OFFICE SUPPLY. All needs were met with a smile, grace and integrity. The big stores cannot match the spirit that Nancy, Richard, Beau (Nancy's teacup poodle), and beloved George offered to us lucky customers. THANK YOU SO MUCH. Americana... God Bless You All Forever.
*Tragically, tiny Beau passed away shortly before Mr. Brewer. My heart goes out to Beloved Nancy - Beau was 13.
