His wife of 40 years lived in another town, and their three children were still living. Fortunately, the lawyer knew about his marriage or somebody informed him, but regardless, a document was sent to the wife informing her and their children to appear the following month for probate of her deceased husband's will. I can just imagine the shock when she found out.
After many hours of research, I haven't been able to locate a Roxana / Roxanna Dabgins anywhere, so until I do, I'll just imagine her as a 30 year old widow with red hair and three young children. She knew her 70 year old man wouldn't last forever. So until I discover John's parent's names, and the brick wall comes down, he will be in the dog house, regardless of his reason for cutting his wife and children out of his estate.
This to be my last will and Testament.
