A ‘glassy’ kind of guy

We have a playhouse in our back yard that our grandchildren just love to play in. A couple of months ago we realized that somehow the sliding glass door on the playhouse had broken. Our grandchildren were obviously upset about this, but being that it was winter we didn’t rush to fix it right away.

Finally, the snow started to melt, so we decided to begin the repair. We needed a new glass door, so we called Sopris Glass in Carbondale. They told us to come on down, and they would see what they could do for us. Joel was helping us to figure out what all we needed and in conversation, he found out it was for the playhouse, Well, as soon as he heard it was for our grandchildren he said he wanted to donate the material we needed for the repair.

In today’s day and age, with all the turmoil around us, it is very refreshing to run into people who still have compassion and goodness. We greatly appreciate it! Thanks, Joel!
