I am going through this situation right now! It is worse than death. How can a wife stop any family member from visiting their father! It is wrong and goes against what is decent. Thank goodness I have a slight chance at winning the guardianship based on the caregiver/companion marrying my father on after knowing him for 7 months and secretly marrying him a week after family members discussed getting him medical treatment for his memory loss etc. It is still a hard case, because my dad is 24/7 around this woman (wife) who distorts the picture of the family and their intent to him and my father is now completely on non-speaking terms with his entire family because of this woman.
How can a person be so heartless...just so she could have a persons money!
WE will see what the judge rules... I just wish I could have my old dad back. The one that loved me and remembered me. The one that was proud of me and wanted to spend time with his grandson and family... that is the case I want won. I just want my dad back.

It kills me 2 see anyone take advantage of Peter Falk or anyone else this way. What a shame this even happened. Where is everyone who was there through the years including generation of fans? Family comes 1st & 2 not be able 2 c him before something happens 2 him should be illegal. I hope this doesnt happen. What a way 2 live out ur final years. Makes me sick. I love the many memories of Peter Falk & hope it all turns out rite or I will make a difference in this world if not!

He was a treasured jewel and it is such a shame that such a telented and loving person would end his days not remembering all the wonderful accomplishments that he gave the world. Our hearts go out to him and his family and we just have to trust that the decision his wife of MANY years has made is whats best for him. WE love you Peter Falk!!!!!
