    Apostrophe

    Am I correct to omit the first apostrophe for Mr. Smith, Peter and Bill?

    - We approved Mr. Smith (Smith's) and Mrs. Smith's auto loan last week.
    - He wanted to borrow Peter (Peter's) and Cindy's car. (husband and wife)
    - Bill (Bill's) and Nancy's total assets are very strong. (husband and wife)

    Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    We approved Mr and Mrs Smith's loan.

    The other two sentences look okay to me.

    Hope this helps,
