Thanks for delivering my orders...they're always packed carefully.
My dog has started barking at you again...when she was used to getting a treat, she didn't bark.  Are you leaving a treat on top of the box? maybe a crow or something else is getting it before I do?  I understand if you don't do that anymore...I'll have a treat ready, she'll think it came from you and she'll stop barking at you so much. Thanks again.
12/23/2019 11:18 PM were too efficient this morning and delivered before 5am (had a holiday thank you for you).  It will be there for next week!  The Shanamans

Thank you so much for being our milkperson!  We are sorry you have to deal with random shoes, bubble blowing supplies and other kid items on our milk box.  
We are so thankful to you for delivering to us.  I can only imagine how busy you are right now.  And yet our orders are always laid with care, so neatly in our box!  You are fantastic!

All our best,

Thank you for delivering us the best milk around. I was raised on fresh cows milk so I’m quite picky when it comes to milk. We are lucky to have Smith Brothers. Thank you for all the extras we’ve been requesting during this crazy time. I know that makes extra work for you, we are so grateful for your attention to detail and your hard work.

Happy National Milkman's Day! I appreciate my half-gallon of milk delivery very much! Thanks for putting in the extra work to go through the gate and up my stairs to put it in the porch box. And thank you for being so quiet, too--that's much appreciated! Keep up the good work!

I don't get to see you very often, BUT, when I do, you always have a BIG smile for me. I appreciate all you do for my orders in the way you make sure that they are secure in my milk box. I'm planning on moving, soon and I hope that you will follow me to the new address. Thanks again, for ALL you do to make me a happy customer.

Hi Tyrell - thank you for delivering our milk and other delicious groceries! We appreciate your work in keeping our family fed and safe.  Happy Milkman Day!
6/25/2020 6:31 PM
Your work, Tyrell, means a lot to my husband and me. I've been very ill, in the hospital two times this spring, and my immune system is weak. We take the COVID19 quarantine very seriously, and at times I've not left the house for several weeks in a row. You have literally had my life and safety in your hands, just like a doctor. We don't get to see you very often, and now can't give you a hug, but please know I am sending a heart hug to you. May you and your family stay safe and healthy in these difficult times. Warmly, Judy Lipton
6/25/2020 6:48 PM

Tyrell, you have no idea how much you mean to our family. When we first signed up for a milkman it made sense because we had a baby in the house. Soon after, I was injured at work and had a really tough recovery and you helped me fill in the blanks. This year, during quarantine, you became our lifeline connection with the outside world. THANK YOU for always being reliable, consistent, communicative and friendly. We bless your name every single Friday, happy milkman's day!

Thanks for making our life easier!  Monday mornings are better because you deliver our milk to the front door. I also think you deliveries help the environment because we make far fewer trips to the grocery store. Have a Great Day!

Thank you so much for your service every Friday. I hope that Flint is not catching you off guard every time with his 'attack' of the window. He is actually quite friendly. We love how carefully you pack our ever changing order in the box for us, especially when it gets hot outside! We are glad to have you as our milkman!
6/26/2020 12:17 PM
Hi Tyrell--I'm so glad there's a National Milkman Day to nudge me to remember to say how very much our family appreciates you! You've always given us wonderful, on-time, great service and while it's always been fantastic, we are even more grateful now during this trying time to have you out there taking care of us. You arrive early to our house, so I've never had a chance to see your smiling face and thank you in person, but just know how thankful we are! --The Matthieu Family
6/26/2020 12:49 PM
Thank you for your dedicated service no matter what transpires, weather, Coronavirus, Lockdowns, etc. Smith Brothers delivery people are always ready to serve.  Being an elderly household, it is greatly appreciated to have our products delivered and the ability to be able to order so many excellent products.  Thank you again.

Happy belated Milkman Day!  I always look forward to your delivery and I continue to marvel at how well everything fits in the box because of your packing skills...I bet you'd be good at jigsaw puzzles.  Sometimes you're so quiet my dog doesn't hear you, or maybe she does but knows it's you...thanks for the treats to reinforce that :-)
I'm particularly appreciative of your delivering during these trying times, thank you !!

Tyrell, Thank you so much for being a consistent part of our lives right now. Not only do I love being able to have the convenience of my weekly delivery but I love being able to add new treats for my kids. They both help me every week to unload the milkbox, its like a special surprise week after week! We appreciate you!

I have to share a embarrassing story, but I hope you get a good laugh. I order the 6pack of yami yogurt for my two kids each week. Three weeks in a row I was missing 1/6 of the yogurts. The first two times I figured it got broken off in the shuffle. By the third week it was too weird. After emailing smith brothers I had to then apologize to you and the company. My husband leaves for work right after you deliver and has fallen in love with the mango yami yogurts and he was steeling one of out the box as he walked out the door to work!!! My apologies! but I had to laugh after the fact. Thank you again for your excellence.

We have a holiday Card for you! Sorry we forgot the past couple weeks. Thanks for always waving at our kiddos! We appreciate you.
