Janie worked for us at Rushmore Answering Service here in Rapid City. She and Dave used to play a game. Dave would give her a clients name and she would come back with their phone number immediately. Not once in the years she worked for us did she get a number wrong. If employers could have employees like we had with Janie, their lives would be so much easier. She was such a blessing to us AND she made us laugh. We could always count on Janie and we loved her. We are so glad to have known her
