Thank You, Thank You, Thank You
I would like to thank all of you who have retained my services this year, or who have recommended me to another. I appreciate your business. This was a difficult year for all of us. If you have lost a loved one to COVID-19, my heart goes out to you. I have had many clients contact me this year because they want to get their affairs in order. Many of the people I have seen this year are medical professionals. I want to thank all our first responders and all who work in the medical field. You have saved lives his year. You have shared your compassion with total strangers who have not been able to see their friends and family for months.
I have clients come into my office to sign legal documents and they tell me they have not left their house since March. People are scared to leave their houses. I appreciate your courage to venture out of your safety zone to ensure your last wishes are known to your loved ones. There can be no greater act of love than to take care of our families, even after death.
In my office we have been very careful to follow all CDC guidelines. All my initial consultations are over the phone so that we can minimize client contact. Our office appointments are held one hour apart so we can disinfect the office between clients. We wear masks and we require our clients to wear masks at the appointment and we sit 6 feet apart. Your safety is important to us.
I would like to share with you a poem I read after my husband died, many years ago. If you have lost someone, I hope it will bring you some comfort.
To the living, I am gone.
To the sorrowful, I will never return.
To the angry, I was cheated.
But to the happy, I am at peace,
And to the faithful, I have never left.
I cannot be seen, but I can be heard.
So as you stand upon a trail,
Gazing at the beautiful mountains – remember me.
As you look upon a flower and admire its simplicity – remember me.
Remember me in your heart,
Your thoughts, your memories of the times we loved,
The times we cried, the times we fought, the times we laughed.
For if you always think of me,
I will never be gone.
I am hopeful that 2021 will be a better year for all!
