    Default Sues for wrongful death

    This had to be so hard for Cindy Frey to do.

    Filing the suit wasn't the difficult part, I imagine. This is so awful.

    I had wondered about this. I had tried to push it out of my mind because the thought was so horrible but it appears my fears may have been justified.

    Wow. Yeah, I know it had to be heartbreaking for her to do this. So sad.
    I'd be interested in seeing the response from the hospital.

    If Glenn's situation was anything like other people I've known with auto-immune disorders, sometimes you treat one thing and it makes the other thing worse. It's a real balancing act and sometimes, the body just says, "Enough."

    I truly hope there was no negligence or malpractice involved. But if there was, then I hope every appropriate measure is taken to make sure this doesn't happen to someone else. I hope the doctor and hospital are held accountable.

    It's a warning that we have to be our own best advocates for our health care.

    I hope that the hospital did nothing wrong as it would make this situation even sadder knowing it was a mistake by the hospital. But if they did make a mistake I hope the appropriate respons is made in the future

    Wow! And you would think that as wealthy as Glenn was that he would have had the very best advice and doctors for his issues. I'm sure he did, but I guess even the very best can make mistakes. How sad.

    Wow - I am shocked. So sad to think of what poor Glenn and the family went through.

    I really really really really hope Glenn wasn't neglected. I really don't want to think about that if they did, but if they did. I hope Cindy goes after everybody who is responsible for Glenn's death.

    I'm really not surprised about this. I had a feeling she might sue.

    Brothers for life. RIP Glenn

    I'm not sure I believe in fate, but I know that crossing paths with Glenn Lewis Frey in 1970 changed my life forever, and it eventually had an impact on the lives of millions of other people all over the planet. It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it. But, I will be grateful, every day, that he was in my life. Rest in peace, my brother.

    On the other hand... the litigation culture in America is so pervasive that this course of action seems almost to be expected. But I suppose it isn't for me to judge. I'm an outsider & have no idea what occurred. I just assumed they knew about the side effects of the treatment. I thought they would have known that for years. The pain & mental anguish stuff I suppose was before he was placed in the coma. I had hoped that he hadn't suffered that much.

    It makes everything seem even worse, and I mean everything.

    How terribly sad. Even though I knew he would have been in pain, it hurts seeing it in print. What they must have gone thru. 😢

    They had to know all the side effects for years before. There must be more to the story.
