Dear Mr. Ashton,
Can you please tell me if there is any sort of status update you can give me about the death of my mother?
It’s been 535 days since she died and it still seems like simply nobody cares. She was a healthy, intelligent woman who suddenly went through nine months of hell — primarily because of the incompetence and apathy of healthcare workers — and then died. I spent hours and hours every single day for those nine months trying to get someone to care, someone to help, and then she was taken from me.
I came across this entry I logged regarding the DCF investigator who visited mom the day before she died:
It’s now been at least seven months since Kelly Mathis told me he was working with you on my mother’s case. Is there anything at all I can do to help?
