"Your assistance to our family has been invaluable. We truly would not have gotten this
far and remained sane and speaking to each other without you. The prospect of dealing with my sisters alone was daunting enough, let alone everything else related to my father, and you helped make
it smooth sailing”.
"I am struck by how much your support means to me. Since hiring you I'm not so anxious and not second guessing. Your presence in our lives is a bit of magic. Thanks for who you are and all your talents".
