Please judge for yourself. If you look at the correspondence and documents and connect the dots, does it look as if the accountant's frame the family's established fiduciaries and advisors and supplant them?

E. A. Prichard and Philip Shalloway were attorneys for our family for a long time. My dad, who was also an attorney, spoke highly of them. E. A. Prichard is one of the finest person's I have ever met. I never meet Philip Shalloway. I had always been a fiduciary in my parents wills since they began making their wills in 1966. History suggests that the following is a summary of the consequences of what the accountants told Jean O'Connell:

"I also would like you to be at least courteous to my friends. They know you do not want them around so you may not see much of them. They are people who helped me when I was desperately in need of help and had no place to turn.  Joanne especially was helpful. When [1] Ed Prichard was going to charge me ¼ of your Dad's estate for his fee and [2] Shalloway had a mental break down when he was going to work on the estate it was Joanne who helped me by explaining what I had to do.  She did not want to be a co-trustee but I begged her and she agreed reluctantly tho she had never done it for anyone else. I still think [3] you owe her an apology and a box of candy or bouquet of flowers. Better late than never.  And I would feel ever so much better. Please. Just treat my friends like you want me to treat yours. ..."
