Early in the morning on February 27th, 2012 I forwarded this email to a friend of mine who asked how things were going with mom. I had originally sent it to someone else, but it was a good summary of what was happening and he said he might know someone who could give me advice. […]

Colling, Gilbert, Wright, and Carter

In late September of 2008, a little more than a year after the death of her mother, mom wrote a letter and sent her original birth certificate to someone named Beth at the law offices of Colling, Gilbert, Wright, and Carter.
