Hi Ladonna

That's a terrific story. I'm hoping you are also taking great pains to
ensure she is aware of the myriad ways that less than desirable
individuals will try to coax her into giving her money and information

I really hope there is a special place in hell for folks that prey on
the elderly that way.

Cheers... Rick :)
