1. The son is going to leave when the father does. You cannot
change that so do not let it interfere with your responsibility to remove
2. You mention members of your committee on the list. I hope that
they see this and the several other response which I am sure will be
posted pointing out that it is their job, along with the Chartered

5. Do not discuss the matter with the man at any other time or
