Dear Mrs. Ozmon,

I write to express my deepest sympathy for the loss of your beloved husband.

I am a trial lawyer in Decatur, IL - 180 miles SW of Chicago. When I began practicing law I
attended as many Illinois Trial Lawyer Assn. seminars as I could. Time and time again Nat spoke
and gave tips and ideas that have served me well for two decades.

There is no trial lawyer I admire more.
