    So sorry but apparently even two and a half years after your passing there is still DRAMA surrounding you, absolutely what you hated. The obituary was written by his daughters in michigan,. Not his cherished wife. You have issues with it, contact his daughters and keep the drama offline. Again. Sorry Larry this should NOT of happen.
