They are people who could become very good friends. Herndon has become a town I don’t want to leave and Herndon Village Network has made that possible."
"My driver was very nice and took me to buy groceries and a new alarm clock and batteries. She was able to help me select a new pair of jeans and even underwear. Awesome service."
"Each person who drives you is like an old friend"
