I already placed an order for a new electric wheel chair ( Invacare TDX SR with Formula CG Powered Seating ) and it is on hold awaiting instructions for shipment. I\'ll let you know how the shipment for the wheel chair goes. I will be waiting to read from you with an estimate cost for the requested supplies. -

My mom is anxious to meet you, she said she can't wait to meet the person that is going to cater for her. She said something today and I reasoned with her, this is concerning the supplies you need to order before our arrival and the shipment of the wheel chair. She said we should send you an upfront payment which will serve as a deposit for securing our position with you, the payment will cover the supplies you need to order, your upfront payment and the funds which to have the wheel chair shipped to you. We really need your help concerning this issue, my mom is okay with the idea and she hope that you are willing to assist us through this. So I'll issue you a check that covers all the expenses. You can always come with a friend or family member to the house to watch play with mom. I will have my financial manager informed about this and I want you to get back to me with the below details as requested so that I can pass it across to him and have him make payment to you so that you can do all necessary things. Kindly have the payment details sent to me in the format below Name on check : Address (ONLY RESIDENTIAL ADDRESS PLEASE) : City, State & Zip Code : Mobile Phone number : For finalization of pay rate, we'll be paying you $20/hr just to ensure adequate care of my mother and it would be bi-weekly or monthly depending on your specifics. We'll arrive on the 29th of November but before then we want everything to be in place, the groceries and the wheel chair and I hope you'll be able to handle this. Mom has a friend who could stay with her whenever you are unable to.Thanks a million for your time and understanding, hope to read from you in no time.
