Sound reliable advise

Thank you Scott and Pat for all your 20+ years of community service! I’m a single 65 year old who listens to your show every week. I have learned so much from your advise to others and appreciated your advise to me before I retired. It’s a little daunting going from a 27 year marriage to feeling secure enough to retire alone. Through working
with one of your advisors in Denver he made sure I understood where I stood and also helped me through my mom’s estate after her passing. I’ve been retired almost a year and a half and feel good about my retirement even with the market swings going on today. Best choice I’ve made in my financial life!
