      Happy New Year, thanks again for your assistance with my bankruptcy. I now have $2,385.65 in an RRSP am direct depositing $350.00 a month, plus I have $1,897.31 in a savings account and approximately $1,000.00 in my day to day use chequing account. I also sponsor a young lad in Africa at $38.00 a month. All in all I feel I am doing very well now. Thanks again and have a great year.

      Walter & I would like to thank you and your staff for helping us through this very unfortunate situation we found ourselves in. From the very first meeting when a decision of some type had to be made, we felt we were not alone, you and your company was there helping us through each step. We have learned to live our lives more fully through this experience.
