To the editor:

On behalf of all of us at the Registry of Deeds, I want to thank Robert Lappin and his family for providing my office with a world-class working facility for the last 11 years. Not only did the Lappins provide the taxpayers of Essex County with one of the lowest commercial square-foot rental rates in the area, but maintained an environment of impeccable maintenance and outstanding landlord/tenant relations. Simply put, he ran a class act!

I wish them well and offer our sincere thanks for making our tenancy with the Lappins not only a great experience for us but also for our patrons.
