Good afternoon. First, let me tell you how sorry I am for the loss of your wife. I know this is a difficult time for you and I will certainly keep you in my prayers.

As to your specific question...did your wife have a will? If so, were you named executor in that will? What specifically is the issue with the mortgage company? Thanks!

I just wanted to let you know that I will be away at a meeting for the next hour or so. Should you have a follow up while I’m away, I will address it immediately upon my return. Thank you in advance for your patience. I apologize for any inconvenience.
