Family would not come and pick him up at a hotel. So he had no place to go. He looked drunk the day before going to prison. The man took his life so he would not have to go to prison. So now the family see's a way to make money off of his bad actions.If family cared they would have picked him up at the hotel instead of refusing. Just goes to prove the money is what they care about.

sad situation i see here i mean if the family truely cared about the man then they wqould of picked him up at motel spent some time with him before he was to go off to prison but no now they want to get money for a bad situation after this indiviaul took his life it does happen when you get down to wherer you are an addict and you feel no one cares casue you have done them wrong so many times cause of your addiction but end result is a tempoary problem is not a permant one and life can not come back after death so this family needs to grow up and not act like they cared about him now that he is gone and trying to reap somewthing from him looks like the legal system would not be able to grant them a law suit under the circumstances of the paper work that states they would not accept him when the law called for someone to come and get him
