I am sad that he passed. As far as his certs. I've had a lot that I've purchased in the past end up being completely off - incorrect. 6 months before he retired, I tried for the 1st time to use his services. The response below was very discouraging, crude & off-putting. In return I gave him a hard time, and I regret it because he was likely very sick. Because of the responding communications received when I asked further about why this was so abrupt, I decided not to use his services. I didn't care at all about the fees not being refunded, it was the manner in which it was handled and when I asked more specifically, the replies were disturbing. I did have cards with detailed notes about what I needed confirmed or negated. I wonder if others experienced this from him towards his retirement. Was this how he was, or was it something more personal? Anyway, it's something I feel bad about.
