    Joe & Sharon Boyd “Mr. Kidder (Gary) has assisted Sharon and I, two brother-in- laws and my 96 -year -old mother. Also he has helped several real estate clients of ours. Sharon and I first wandered around in the Rocky Mountains with overpriced, poor performing hearing aids and experienced non-caring get out of here "we already have your money" service and attitude. Our faith and instincts led us to Gary. He has us fitted with state of the art devices that matched our budget. He and his personable staff have always been available to make the few and minor adjustments over the years. Almost every time I visit with my 96- year- old mother she asks me to say hello and thanks to "Mr. Kidder". She again enjoys being around people with whom she can relate by hearing every word.”
