I cannot think of a better team on my side, on this emotionally draining experience... You (and the team) managed to put me at ease from the very beginning, calm me and reassured me that I am in the best hands. For this I am ever so grateful… I know I am not what you would call a "big case" but nevertheless I felt I was as important to you as much more complex cases.
