      Mary-

      So very sorry for your loss.

      I definately would not pay a consultant anything if they did not tell

      me upfront that it was a paid service.

      It sounds like someone trying to take advantage, or like the donor

      service did not know there was a fee, and the consultant thought you

      already were informed of it or something.

      I agree with the others that you should compose a couple of letters

      and send them certified, informing them that the practices are unfair

      and that you are not paying for a service you were not aware you

      would be billed for.

      I am hoping things go as smoothly for you as possible at this

      horrific time and wishing that healing comes quickly for you as you

      go through this.

      Shawnee
