“I thank you, for ensuring my Aunt and Uncle’s affairs have been settled in good order. It is something they both would have cared about and dearly wished for. I feel you have been able to help restore their dignity and leave their estate/affairs in good order – which is what we all must wish/hope for. You have done this in a way that alleviated much if not all of the anxiety and effort from me and my brother for which I am very grateful.
I would like to thank you personally for your diligence and support and your insight and understanding, particularly in regards to working with my brother who can be both anxious and forgetful. Your advice and support has enabled him to participate fully in the settling of our Uncles affairs and I think this helps to allow him to feel useful and of value.” –
