Richard Gilfillan was an abusive alcoholic, a child molester and on the sex offenders list. The world is a better place now that he's gone. I want to know who is responsible for listing my daughter's name as one of his grandchildren? He and my daughter never met. Not once. Because I don't let my kids hang out with predators. I am so furious right now. My daughter never had a grandfather. And her name should certainly not be in this obituary. I want to know who did this.

Kristi Cosner, you are one special person to bash a dead man who can't defend himself. Who are you to bash this whole family and call each and every one of them trash when you never knew the family. Especially since you are a drug addict who married a child whose only 2 years older than your son? Who the heck are you to run your not so perfect mouth? No matter what, this man has passed and his family is grieving. Be respectful of the dead.
