Marriott has been my father’s financial advisor for decades and will do anything that my father wants. He will even say that black is white, if that is what my father decrees. He has also made a lot of money out of my father
Like everyone else, he got that same message, a plea to my father’s friends and associates to make it possible for me, or anyone else, to be able to prepare for what is to going to befall in my father in the future.
To his credit, he was the only one to reply but, to his great detriment, given the gravity of the situation and the need for urgent action, this is all he could say to me

John,Please read the email below, which I sent to my friend and old therapist, Wendy Price, with whom I am sure that you are very familiar with.You have shown unwavering loyalty to my Dad, whether it was right or not for you to do so; much of it to my great detriment.If you truly are his friend and have his best interests at heart, you will consider what I have said to Wendy, very carefully.If you dismiss what I have said out of hand, which you have regularly done in the past, you are no friend of my father’s.Sometimes, a friend has to look beyond loyalty and actually has to consider what is best for his mutual friend, especially when that person is old, frail and quite unwell.
