It's been a while since we installed the electrical for Billy and Karen's spa, that's when I met Billy I could tell when I first talked to him he was an honest man. I meet new customers every day but it's once in a while that I get the privilege to meet someone like Billy. He impressed me more than he new. I want to be just like him one day God Bless Billy Welch .... Cardell
