“I just wanted to say Thank You for all your kind help over the time this has taken it seems to have have been a drawn out affair through no fault of yours. I note you said the file would be closed and stored for six years, do you think I need to keep any paperwork myself or can I get rid of it? I have been very lucky that it was you who was dealing with this you have indeed made it a pleasant experience, always professional, kind and willing to answer phone calls and questions. I wish you and your lovely family all the best for the future, enjoy all those lovely, busy days they go so fast! Take care.” – Mrs Oakes
