Charles Tucker - President - All Types Aluminum Construction

Ray Gunder & Staff of Gunder's: We would like to thank all of you for your great service and dedication in completing a more than complicated job. Almost anyone can complete an easy job. You and your staff showed exactly what you are made of on "Big Red," and it is appreciated. It is refreshing to know that there are still people who take pride in what they do. Big Red is the 3rd vehicle we have taken to Gunder's in a six-year period, and I am proud to say that you have exceeded my expectations each time. Thank you for the excellent way that you do business.

Sister Joanne Boyle

Dear Ray, Deanie and Staff: Once again, thank you for taking care of our cars. We just don't know what we would do without your help. God loves you for your generosity, and I know we do.
