Christmas Eve, 2013
December 24th, 2013 @ 9:53 am

This will be our second Christmas without mom. I still miss her so much that it hurts. I wrote a little bit about our Christmas Eve traditions on my personal website last year. I wish I had more photos of our Christmas trees. You know what I never seem to see any more? Tinsel. We […]

Missed Connections
December 20th, 2013 @ 8:46 am

I received a voice mail from Marla Rawnsley on December 20th, 2013. She attempted to return my call while I was traveling for the holidays and I missed it. Marla said, “Hey David. This is Marla returning your call. It’s about 11:45 here. Uhm, I can be reached here until one o’clock today and then […]

Checking In
December 18th, 2013 @ 10:00 am

I called Marla Rawnsley at ten o’clock while driving to work. Jan the receptionist told me that she was out at lunch and suggested I leave a voice mail, which I did. I said, “Hey, Marla. It’s David Gagne just calling to check in.” I left my phone number twice and asked her to give […]

Still Looking for Answers
December 13th, 2013 @ 8:57 am

In the middle of December 2013, I made another trip to the local FedEx office to photocopy and fax a copy of mom’s autopsy report for Marla Rawnsley of Pappas, Russell, & Rawnsley. Then I sent her the following email:   From: Gagne, David To: Rawnsley, Marla Subject: Kathleen A. Gagne Sent: December 13, 2013 […]

December 12th, 2013 @ 11:06 am

Just before eleven o’clock in the morning of December 12th, 2013, Marla Rawnsley replied to my email from December 5th:   From: Rawnsley, Marla To: Gagne, David Subject: RE: Kathleen Gagne Sent: December 12, 2013 10:51 AM Dear David, I have reviewed all the medicals you sent me but did not find the Autopsy report […]

Double the Frustration
December 12th, 2013 @ 8:08 am

Dealing with two law firms means twice the opportunity to be frustrated. On my drive to work on the morning of December 12, 2013 — 486 days after the death of my mother — I called both Marla Rawnsley and Frank Ashton. I called Marla because on November 25th she told me she’d get back […]

Trying Again
December 11th, 2013 @ 10:04 am

As of December 11th, 2013, it had been over two full weeks since Marla Rawnsley said she’d get back to me in 24 to 48 hours, and just shy of one week since I emailed her to ask for an update. So I called her office to see if I could get her on the […]

Happy Holidays
December 9th, 2013 @ 11:11 am

Shortly after mom died, when I was desperate to find anyone who would give me some advice, I spoke with someone at the law firm of Warner & Warner: Personal Injury Attorneys in Casselberry, FL. I had a very long conversation with this person, often in tears, during which I detailed how my mom had […]

Another Desperate Plea
December 5th, 2013 @ 11:55 am

  From: Gagne, David To: Rawnsley, Marla Subject: Kathleen Gagne Sent: December 5, 2013 11:55 AM Dear Marla, Good afternoon. I hope you had a happy Thanksgiving. I was wondering if you’d yet had a chance to review all of the documentation I sent you regarding the untimely death my mother. It’s now been 479 […]

Risperdal on The Daily Show
December 5th, 2013 @ 9:55 am

Last night on The Daily Show there was a segment about the Johnson & Johnson case I mentioned a few weeks ago. Jon Stewart noted how absurd it was that a corporation could simply “get away” with bribing doctors to prescribe useless and / or harmful medications to the elderly, disabled, and children. At one […]
