    I want vehemently to acclaim the work and character and courtesy of Steve Kavatziklis, along with this painter Hussain.   Across a pretty challenging (nit-picking) process of getting our apartment just right, Steve has constantly been courteous, patient, and professional; and his work output has been exceptional.
    You, the management of Cornerstone, have a treasure in Steve K.   Feel free to publish this acclaim of Steve K, wherever you wish; he deserves it.
