To whom it may concern:
I am writing in regards to my account with Medical Center of McKinney. My remaining balance is 2151.37. My husband has been out of work since October and it has severely affected our finances. That is why I have not been able to make payments on this account.
We will be getting a tax refund this year. I would like to settle this account. I would really like to know if there is anyway I can have the negative information removed from my credit. If this is not possible I will apply the money to other negative accounts that I have with other companies. I am going to apply this money where it will best affect my credit. I hope that it will be with you.
Please respond and let me know if there is any agreement that we can make in writing to remove the information from all three credit reporting agencies and I will be prepared to pay the outstanding amount in full.
Thanks so much for your time and consideration.
never underestimate a good old fashioned letter

Oh and here his how the swing is attached. The swing is from Ikea The swing endeaver prompted a new purchase. Kyle has needed a good drill for a long, long time. It seems like every project sends us borrowing one from someone. So with a little Consumer Reports research we found the best drill out there - curious? Its this one Lowes had it on clearance. Man how we love saving money and how we love consumer reports. Seriously I think its one of the best ways to save money!!!

Just wanted to let everyone know what our family has planned and to thank you all for the offers of help. Aunt Beth's wishes were to be cremated and those arrangements have been taken care of. Aunt Beth lived most of her life in Texas and extended family is all over the South, the only family in Virginia is my Mom. So we have decided to hold a small memorial service in June at our Family Reunion. That will make it easier for extended family. After that Meg and I will arrange a covert operation to sprinkle her ashes along with her husband's on the Ranch in Kerrville (Texas Hill Country) where they built their dream home. Its is a large ranch so I hope we can accomplish our mission without trespassing.

Many of you know my Aunt Beth (don't be fooled by the nomenclature -she is more like a grandmother than an Aunt). You may remember that she was diagnosed with Colon Cancer last year. The news came around the time of our mildly depressing (because we were all sick - especially me) Christmas. She has soldiered through the difficulties of major surgery followed by Chemotherapy. Then she suffered a stroke. Meg and I went after Christmas to help around the house and get things in order for an easier rehabilitation. We made plans for her next trip here to Texas to see the kids, play board games, eat good food, etc. All the stuff that is fun to look forward to.
