I just wanted to take a moment and thank everyone in customer service for being prompt, kind and patient…I have been stressed and emotional while experiencing a new life and new job in big city Denver. I love still having a credit union where I get a real person on the phone. Thanks again, I can't imagine handling people and money all day!"- C.W.
