I am absolutely delighted with all the information that you have found for me. It had taken me a great deal of time to find the correct person, working on the problem for about five years! I was not positive even then that I had the correct one! Your research has I believe, proven that I have the correct lady. Thank you very very much for carrying out this research for me, you have done a wonderful job.
