Dear Ms. Meek,As I have informed you before, Bank of Hawaii was never appointed as a trustee of the Elvin R. Meek Family Trust. Althoughthe Court appointed Bank of Hawaii as a co-trustee of the QDOT, no assets were ever transferred to Bank of Hawaii from thetrustee of the Elvin R. Meek Family trust to fund the QDOT. Funding of any trust created under the Elvin R. Meek Family Trustwould have to be done by the trustee of the Elvin R. Meek Family Trust, as that trustee would have held all such assets.Your questions regarding the Court proceedings have already been resolved by Order of each respective Judge. Furthermore,may I remind you once again that by court Order Bank of Hawaii was
released and discharged for its administration as co-trustee of the QDOT.
Our involvement in this matter has concluded.PennyHave a wonderful day!

Letter from Bank of Hawaii
Ms. Tong: Upon careful review of the income tax forms filed during the audit on my father's estate in 2007, several entries were observedon the form 706 specifically detailing accounts in the bank of Hawaii specifically in the amount of $250,000 as well as$117.064. These are the income tax returns filed after the tax audit performed on the estate. It is my understanding theaccountant Michael Gould took over 4 years to file the tax returns and only after being prompted by the IRS with an audit. Wehave never received from Mr. Gould an explanation as to why the filing took over 4 years.Most important the Exemption trust was never funded and yet the returns reflect that it was. This as you know knocks theestate down from 3.7 million (a figure we feel Attorney Robert Jones achieved by listing our father's properties undervalue) to2.7 million. As no doubt you are aware in 2007 an estate UNDER 3.0 million pays ZERO tax.We need to discuss these entries as well as the failure of the Bank of Hawaii to fund the Exemption Trust. While RhondaGriswold and James Ashford, Elizabeth Meek's counsel with the law firm of Cades Shutte has confirmed in recent e mailsthat the exemption trust was never funded due to the ongoing litigation, it does not relieve the Bank of Hawaii of its fiduciary
