Elizabeth A. Meek (K-EAM-1 through K-EAM-11). You requested that I determine whether the signatures in question were authored by the same persons whose signatures appear on the exemplary material (Elvin R. Meek and Elizabeth A. Meek). Method of Examination 1. It was first determined that the questioned material is adequate and of sufficient quality to be acceptable for the examination process. 2. It was determined that the exemplary signatures are sufficient, adequate and acceptable for comparison purposes. 3. The questioned signatures were enlarged to approximately 200% for ease of examination and comparison. 4. For ease of examination, the comparison signatures were also enlarged to approximately 200%. 5. Individual features of the questioned signatures were compared, both on-screen and on printouts, to the signatures known to have been written by Elvin R. Meek and Elizabeth A. Meek, and any differences and similarities were noted. Findings From Examination After careful detailed study I have formed the following opinions regarding the material in question. These opinions are expressed without bias or liability in so far as legal action is concerned. Opinion: The exemplary signatures known to have been written by Elvin R. Meek (K-ERM-1 through K-ERM-12) are not in agreement with the questioned “Elvin R. Meek” signatures (Q-ERM-1 and Q-ERM-2) on the September 19, 1997 First Amended Declaration of Trust. There are numerous significant differences between the questioned and known signatures, including but not limited to: individual letter formations, letter proportions, letter combinations, arrangement, and pictorial appearance. The dissimilarities noted are too numerous to be attributed to chance or accident and are overwhelmingly convincing that the questioned “Elvin R. Meek” signatures and the known Elvin R. Meek signatures were not produced by the same person. Further, the few similarities noted are insignificant when compared to the numerous differences. I have therefore determined that Elvin R. Meek did not affix his signature to the September 19, 1997 First Amended Declaration of Trust. Charts demonstrating many of the differences between the questioned “Elvin R. Meek” signatures and those known to have been written by Elvin R. Meek are attached hereto as Exhibit “E.” Opinion: The exemplary signatures known to have been written by Elizabeth A. Meek (K-EAM-1 through K-EAM-11) are not in agreement with the questioned “Elizabeth A. Meek” signature (Q-EAM) on the September 19, 1997 First Amended

Declaration of Trust. There are numerous significant differences between the questioned and known signatures, including but not limited to: individual letter formations, letter proportions, letter combinations, arrangement, slant, alignment, and pictorial appearance. The dissimilarities noted are too numerous to be attributed to chance or accident and are overwhelmingly convincing that the questioned “Elizabeth A. Meek” signatures and the known Elizabeth A. Meek signatures were not produced by the same person. Further, the few similarities noted are insignificant when compared to the numerous differences. I have therefore determined that Elizabeth A. Meek did not affix her signature to the September 19, 1997 First Amended Declaration of Trust. Charts demonstrating many of the differences between the questioned “Elizabeth A. Meek” signatures and those known to have been written by Elizabeth A. Meek are attached hereto as Exhibit “F.” If you need additional information regarding my findings, do not hesitate to call. Should you require that I testify to any of this material, please so inform me at your earliest convenience. Sincerely, Reed Hayes, CDE
