Got my first job from Uncle Rick as a Receptionist (after school) at Small Business Assistance on Ford Road in Dearborn Heights. He was really patient and kind. Small Business Assistance is hard to say quickly. You try saying "Small Business Assistance, may I help you?' I only messed it up one time - when Aunt Pat called. I don't think I lasted too much longer.

We are proud of you Rob.

Love, Jacey
