On Monday, May 13, 2013, at 2:34 PM, Kelly Mathis of Mathis & Murphy, P.A. emailed James B. Morrison of Quintairos, Prieto, Wood & Boyer, P.A., the law firm representing Woodland Terrace with a subject line of Estate of Kathleen Gagne:


Mr. Morrison,

Please advise when we will receive the records for the above named decedent.

Thank you,



Mr. Morrison responded at 3:22 PM with:


Did you provide prepayment to facility ?


Two days later, on Wednesday, May 15th, at 10:24 AM, Mr. Mathis sent another email to Mr. Morrison:


Can you have the nursing home fax or email the invoice asap?



Mr. Morrison replied to that email at 10:42 AM the same day with:


I will work on. They were supposed to handle.

Mr. Mathis forwarded me this response at 5:47 AM on Thursday, May 16th.


I responded to Mr. Mathis’ forward at 6:10 AM with:


Thank you for keeping me updated. I do appreciate it.

According to Jill and Jennifer, he has been saying that for almost two months now.

Would it be helpful if I called and / or emailed him each day as well?


Mr. Mathis replied to me at 8:21 AM with simply:


Probably not.



At 9:32 AM on Friday, May 17th, I wrote to Mr. Mathis:


Hey, Kelly,

Did you email or call Mr. Morrison today?


At 9:55 AM on Monday, May 20th, I again wrote Mr. Mathis:


Hey, Kelly,

Have you emailed or called Mr. Morrison since the 15th?


At 10:33 AM I received a BCC of an email from Mr. Mathis to Mr. Morrison, in which Mr. Mathis wrote:


What do I need to do to get the invoice and documents?



At 10:42 AM Mr. Mathis forwarded me a copy of an email Mr. Morrison sent him at 10:35 AM in which Mr. Morrison wrote:


I spoke to facility on Friday. You should get invoice this week.


I replied to Mr. Mathis at 1:34 PM with:


Thank you for staying on top of this, Kelly.

I have very little faith that we will receive anything this week, but I suppose I have no choice but to wait.
