I want to thank you both for the time spent this past weekend commissioning my new 760R. I can’t tell you how valuable the experience was for me. I felt like a sponge attempting to absorb all the information Richard was imparting. Richard you are a natural teacher/leader—not sure how you remain calm in every situation—always coming up with a thoughtful plan and executing without a hitch. One of the greatest lessons of this weekend is watching how you react to unexpected and sudden events sometimes emergent – not too dissimilar to heart surgery—I wish I had more of your calm demeanor—something to emulate.
— Michael A
