Hi Marcus!
Thanks for filling up our box with goodies - and leaving a treat for the dog who greets you with growls on Monday mornings! I'll leave you a polaroid of the little stinker (Ray Ray) so you know who's making all the racket. Thank you for everything you do - and please stay safe!

Hi Marcus! I love that your photo is with your sweet kids. My own kids and I really appreciate your work and wanted to thank you for bringing our milk and food each week! Also, my dogs like the milkbones you somehow knew to leave for them.

Thank you! Happy wishes to you and your family for a healthy, safe winter.

Thank you for the delivery each week.  The dogs also say “woof” for the “Marcus cookie” they enjoy while we bask in our delicious dairy and veggies.  You are the best!!!  Tom and Erin

Hi Marcus,

Thanks for bringing our goodies each week - I am so impressed with your work ethic, you are seriously moving at 3 am! My pup also thanks you for the doggie treat (and he is very sorry about the time a poop bag was left on the milkbox). Hope you have a wonderful holiday!  Doug & Jen on 190th Ct.
