For the record, Mary Ann has not spoke to my father and Step Mother in over 25years. No calls no visits or anything. As for me, I have only spoke to her once or twice in the last 20 years. The last time,I told her Dad had been ill and her coment was that she hoped the sob would just die. So to say she is hurt and would of been there is a joke. Even when our mother died she came to the funeral home sat in the car and told me when I was ready to devide things up to call me. I think this was a pretty good reason for us not to call her. Her only brother Richard Zeiter
I am sorry for the passing of your loved one but i think it would have been very nice of the family to have also notified his daughter Mary Ann Zeiter and her son of her fathers and his grandfathers death.She is very upset to have found out several days after his funeral.There was family members who knew how to notify Mary and Leroy of his passing we would have been there for the funeral.When Mary finally found out of Mervin’s death and read it in the newspaper on line she was not even mentioned as his child.I am very sorry that he passed away.I just wish we could have been able to have been there with the rest of the family to have said our good byes to him also
