It is with heartfelt and bittersweet emotions that we say “good-bye” to Kathy Strean. Kathy will be retiring after 28 years of outstanding service not only to her clients but to our agency as a whole. She has been a large part of our agencies success and growth over the years and we will sincerely miss her knowledge, teamwork and dedication for a long time to come.

On a personal side, Kathy has been more than an agent and office manager, she has been my friend, confidant and I will miss her. I want to thank her for all that she has done for us. Please join us in wishing her the best retirement filled with happiness as she enters this next chapter of her life –

Best Wishes - Tom
