    Lynn if you see this – My sisters and I want our dads ashes! You used him! I can’t believe you married him when he was in the veterans hospital dying of lung cancer. And you making him drive to WA to finalize the divorce from my mom while he was in pain was selfish! It’s ironic how you decide to marry him when it was obvious that he didn’t have much time left. And then after he did pass away, you disappeared and didn’t talk to any of us… And come to find out, all this BS went down not even a year after losing my dad… I even heard that you sold his tools. If you really loved him you would’ve stayed in contact with us (his family) and you wouldn’t have clucked off his things!!!! My sister and I will be driving out to your moms house to get whatever is left of my dads things…
