Electronic Mail – Jasper County, IA – 03 MAR 2023

Mr. Eaton,

Thank you for this information and the time you invested in assembling it. I will review it more this weekend.

I agree with your assessment that lawyers are the only party that profits from these situations. My work is motivated by my desire to ensure another child does not experience the loss that mine have.

You are correct, neither of us is a lawyer, but as parents, we do what must be done to protect our children. At the same time, I do not allow the papers hanging from my wall to define who I am or my capabilities. Instead, I take them down individually, usually once daily, as required.

Take care, Sir, and have a good weekend.
