this was a tragic end to an impossible situation.this started over an innocent conversation that a new pregant nurse at moms nursing home was cute and wondered if she was having a boy or girl. sondra went ballastic and started screaming at the top of her lungs all night. dan tried to go out of the house3 times to get away from her each time he came back the screaming started again. her behavier has been like this for a year. out of shear desperation he threw about a cup of gas at her. from which he was immiately sorry. he just wanted the screaming to stop. last summer he slept in the shop several times to get away from the screaming. from here the case esccalted and was sensationalized. he got a misdeamer violation of a contact order beacause the lawyer said he could get a vehicle from the property that was his sole property. at the rtime it occured he as with me and our mom at the silver lake ma.. judge clark peterson over rode the $10.000 bail and raised it to $500000. this made dan feel that he had no chance in the legal system and gave up. sondra was asking for $85000 in the divorce more than he had left as the legal costs were at $100000. he gave up all hope and was very depressed when he decided to take his own life i could write more. dan was a car guy that restored many beautiful vehicles. he loved his family and they loved him. sondra is only about the mone. she took control of his body and wouldnt even let his mother see him altho the family offered to take care of him. she wont let us bury him with our dad. she is controlling and greedy to the end. i could write more
