Dear Laura, Rob and John,

I wanted to write to thank you all for the remarkable kitchen we have thanks to you all. Every aspect of the soapstone countertops and sink, and the cabinets, has surpassed our expectations. Cindy and I went over there this evening and my breath was taken away! So thank you.

One question: are there any leftover pieces or shards of the soapstone that are too small for you to use but that we could have to make into coasters or cutting boards or anything else? Yes, that’s just how much we love that soapstone. I told Cindy that my only regret is that I’m not 25 years younger so that I would have more time to live with and appreciate every vein and nuance of the stone.

With much gratitude,
