Mr. Silver took care of my lawn for the last three years. He was so dedicated to doing an excellent job. I had some bare spots and he worked tirelessly to get grass growing in those places. This year his fertilizer and grass seed has finally produced lots of green grass.
He was a fine gentleman who never complained, dependable and always pleasant. I will miss him as I know all of his family will.
