From Bob Casady:

I had to send you first these photos of our newly completed deck! I can’t express my gratitude enough to you and Schweitzer for this wonderful gift. As I purchased my new Subaru a year ago from my parent’s inheritance and always think of them when I drive it, I’ll always be grateful to my brothers and sisters at Schweitzer as I enjoy this deck.
