“Dear Simon, Thank you so much for your help and wisdom yet again! Bless you. Well, It’s a long time now since I first sought your help following my husband’s traumatic accident. Then his diagnosis with Atypical Parkinson/MSA and lung cancer.
You, and your support team, were so kind and helpful before and when he died. So many things to arrange made more difficult during the first lockdown. Thankfully, you were very flexible and kind, thinking “outside the box”. At that time, it was essential to have professionals with that mindset. The Will is done! The LPA is finally done. Many thanks, Simon, I felt sure there was an agreement – very good indeed we found it amongst my deeds. My grateful thanks and best wishes”
