Jonee and Paul Barnett of Miracle Method Surface Refinishing have been married for thirty years, and along the way they’ve picked up a few secrets to love and happiness:
“We moved into our home in 1990,” says Susan Kreneck of Missouri City, “and this year the kitchen really needed a complete overhaul. A few years ago I had someone do my master bathroom. While I like the finished progress, it took twice as long and there were so many errors. For this new project, I found Teri Gilberg, the Re-Modelista, in a local magazine and called her up out of the blue. She and her contractor Hector redid my entire kitchen--from the floor to the windows to the cabinets to the counters to tearing out the wet bar--in three weeks! Working with Teri was a dream!”
When Bob Cook, a salesman at Classic Chevrolet Sugar Land needed major dental work, the first place he went quoted prices that were “embarrassingly high.” He says, “Luckily, I met Dr. Thomas Lomonte at the Annual Classic Chevrolet Sugar Land Chili Cookoff. I told him my situation and he invited me to come by his office. Together we drew up a plan to get everything done within my budget. He made the whole process so easy!”
“When I was diagnosed with cellulitis in my left leg,” says Kyle O’Reilly, “it destroyed the capillaries that normally return blood from the bottom to the top of my leg. My calf and especially my ankle were affected with swelling and painful varicose veins. Since I was on a blood thinner those varicose veins were also dangerous. One popped and started bleeding, so my doctor referred me to local Vascular Surgeon, Ulises Baltazar MD, RVT, FACS.”
