Comment: hand it over

In reply to comment: I understand (see in situ)

hand it over

doesn't necessarily mean for free.

When I first saw their statement it had already been changed to have a cordial message for....and I had commented on the original thread as well. So, I never saw the original statement that you are saying was changed.

Anyway, it is highly likely that more than one person is involved in (even if only a spouse) and one person making a statement for others might have been in error. Until I know more details on that, I will give them the benefit of the doubt. Besides, I am sure they can negotiate to something reasonable.
