My deepest thanks to you for your kind, willing help and your great proficiency.
I would like to thank you very much for all the work you have done for me at a very difficult time and I will be forever grateful to you.
Thank you for your work in advancing these matters in such a friendly professional manner and with a delightful lightness of touch; you have both helped to make a difficult life event much easier to deal with. For that I will always be grateful.
Your professionalism and courtesy was very much appreciated and took the pressure from our shoulders while we dealt with other matters. A huge thank you to you.
