    Thank you, I really was beginning to believe that your company didn't exist, but after talking to you yesterday, ordering, and then receiving the socks today in time to pass them out to the girls during their lunch; I do believe your company is amazing! The boys team saw the socks and wanted a pair, the other team's coach ask where I got them, but best of all the girls felt great in their uniforms with their new socks. We lost our game, but play well. Thanks again for getting us the socks so quickly!
