  From: Mathis, Kelly To: Gagne, David Subject: Re: Kathleen A. Gagne Sent: December 27, 2012 8:50 AM I assume that the attorney you spoke with prior has not done anything at all.

I wrote a little something about Christmas in our family on my personal website. I am so, so heartbroken this holiday, our first without mom. She should have gotten to enjoy being a grandmother and she should have gotten to have many, many more Christmases and it’s just not fair. I miss her so much. […]

Another Communication Lapse
December 20th, 2012 @ 10:50 am

I just emailed Steve Phillips, the attorney at Pincus & Currier, LLP who has been working with us. I simply forwarded him the same email I sent him a week ago and added, “Please respond to my email from last week (below),” to the top of it. It’s now been over two weeks since I […]

Mom had incredible penmanship. (Her mother did, too, and I’ve tried to mimic their style my entire life.) She wrote me so frequently that I have — literally — boxes of cards and letters from her. She sent me a card on every holiday. She even sent me cards on Jewish holidays just to be […]

Autopsy Results
December 8th, 2012 @ 12:18 pm

Early in December of 2012, I was walking around Beverly Hills — window-shopping and carrying my son — when my phone rang. It was Dr. Wolf. She asked if I had time to talk and I apologized and said that I couldn’t because I had my hands full. I asked her if she could call […]

On the morning of December 6th, 2012, I received a phone call from Elaine, who said she was the assistant to Dr. Barbara Wolf. Elaine called to tell me that Dr. Wolf had received the final payment I made for the autopsy she performed on mom and that she should have the toxicology results soon, […]
