    I should not have said that. I said it out of anger that my sister and I were not given the notice or a second thought when our father was sick and dying. My sister and I have had same address and phone numbers for over 10 years. Would love to know how he passed. Wendy and Delena

    @Wendy Fleagle My grandfather is the best person i’ve ever met in my life and he’s your father why would you hope his death was painful i haven’t met you or Delena but he’s your father so respect him for that. And if you going to treat my grandfather like that i don’t see how any of it would concern you and the reason we couldn’t contact you is because your last names have changed we have actually tried at the hospital when he was dying to get a hold of you. We understood that you were his daughters but why did you just leave and have not contact so Wendy and Delena please stay out of our lives. thanks, Dakota Towne Tonya’s son
