Thank you for the will which I received next day, and for your much appreciated kindness.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for everything. Apart from the work done I thank for all your support and understanding. I will probably need your help in the future for other matters, and I will like to think that I can take your services.
On behalf of my sisters, …I would like to say thank you for all your attention with regard to the winding up of our Mother’s estate. J and I enjoyed meeting you at your offices in London when we came through. We wish you all the best.
