  1. Jessica,

    My name is Brad Griffin and I work for Edwards Interiors, Inc. in Rincon, GA. I recently saw the story about you and your family and we would like to offer support for your family's new home.

    Edwards Inerior, Inc. would love to donate the kitchen and bathroom cabinets and install them. Pleae give me a call at your convenience to discuss the details.

  2. Brad, I know we have spoke privately but I just wanted to tell you here, thank you so much. Your company is wonderfully generous. I am amazed at your kindness. As everyone knows, cabinets are my favorite part of a house and so you, sir, are my new best friend.

  3. It doesn't make sense to sink all your money into fixing an old house. Use grand rapids custom home builders to build your dream house instead.
