Good afternoon Linda,

I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. In order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please.

1. Are you presently married?

2. Were you ever married to someone for 10 years or more in which the marriage ended in divorce or the death of your spouse?

Doug
