To the and Exchange Commission,

I give thanks that my family, as a whole, has an honest, decent and
trustworthy financial planner. My father, who turned 88 this year and
my uncle (92) have enough money, along with Social Security, to be able
to live comfortably despite their advanced ages. I see friends of
theirs who were not as fortunate, struggling to get by, because of bad
financial advise. To me, that is Elder Abuse, and those who knowingly
give bad advice, pad their fees, and/or steal from their clients should
be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, and those laws need to

Thank you.


Mrs. Elizabeth Dearey
