  • I would also like to thank you for getting these documents drawn up so quickly so that we could sign them before we all left town on Friday, that made the process go so much faster! I would also like to commend Mr. Whiting for making this such a simple process for us and for being so understanding and caring in his dealings with us all, especially our mother.
