    I think it is most disgusting what Juliet Elaine Nelson White has done. Taking advantage of the elderly when they are in a vulnerable situation. This woman is a liar and a thief.She put close to one thousand dollars on my wifes phone bill for calls to Jamaica and took a check from Hans Andersen to coerce my wife into putting her son as poa with option to delegate beneficiaries. Without a doubt said woman is a meddling bitch who will do just about anything to satisfy her way of life. I hope most sincerely this woman is put away for a long time.
