These are some of the accountants instructions to Jean O'Connell about 1985-1986. They are given over the telephone or in person which, unless memos are made and unless the memos survive, makes it impossible to trace the instructions back to the accountants. I don't understand how Jean O'Conneell trusting the accountant's instructions is interpretted as the accountants following Jean O'Connell's instructions. Does following these instructions render the family powerless and make money dissappear, and use the trust of a trusting family member to do it?
I would not have known of these instructions had Jean O'Connell not made memo's of them and had her memos not survived.
Please judge for yourself if the accountants frame the established fiduciaries and advisors and take control of the family's assets.
"I also would like you to be at least courteous to my friends. They know you do not want them around so you may not see much of them. They are people who helped me when I was desperately in need of help and had no place to turn. Joanne especially was helpful. When  Ed Prichard was going to charge me ¼ of your Dad's estate for his fee and  Shalloway had a mental break down when he was going to work on the estate it was Joanne who helped me by explaining what I had to do. She did not want to be a co-trustee but I begged her and she agreed reluctantly tho she had never done it for anyone else. I still think  you owe her an apology and a box of candy or bouquet of flowers. Better late than never. And I would feel ever so much better. Please. Just treat my friends like you want me to treat yours. ..."
