"I would like to give a special thanks to my loyal pattern designer Daniel Malone. In addition to a demanding full time job as a project manager and an even more important full time job as Husband and Father to a beautiful wife and two adorable girls, he uses his lunch hour to design patterns. I would also like to thank my friend Mike Huffman of the Glass Gallery www.glassgalleryva.com who is my mentor and has gone way beyond the call many times to help me complete my projects. Most of all I am thankful for the gift that God gave me to work with stained glass. This medium has led me to meet many wonderful families along with other artists, many of which have become friends over the years. To all my loyal repeat customers ...Thanks so much!!! The greatest form of flattery is a referral."
