I wish to communicate by phone. Actually you will ultimately need to communicate with my mother-in-law Pat. The album is with her. What can we do toaccomplish this?
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Is there another expert who WILL talk on the phone?
Expert:  Glenda B. replied 1 month ago.

You have a phone call request in, if one of the experts can help you by phone they will reach out to do so. If not then there is not anyone who can or will do a phone call. Experts only do phone calls if they want to. We are independent of the site we do not work for the site, we come to the site to answer questions customers post there.

All the experts that do phone calls have more then likely looked at the request. If there is one that will take it you will be contacted.
