    This is a sad time for the children. I can't imagine how a little 4 year old girl is going to deal with this. Why didn't her father think about his kids before he took action? Very sad indeed.

    so sad and sorry that at least one of their children had to be personally involved in this

    just a curios question: why is she referred to as Kaylynn Spackman, and not by her husband's name or a compound of both Spackman-Castillo.
    for some reason that strikes me odd at the moment

    funeral services don't have to be costly, or excessively so. i buried a friend (1997 national cemetery) for $1800 which was a lot for me at the time. buried (2013) my cremated wife; we previously purchased our plot) and had purchased burial insurance, for abt $2500

    please be both reasonable and kind, a little generosity would be appreciated i am certain

    "Reasonable Person" should realize that there are now three minor children with no parent to support them. There is now no steady income to pay utilities, insurance, a house payment, buy clothes, food, etc. There will probably be large legal fees to get someone appointed as guardian and provide access to whatever funds the mother had unless she had a trust in place. Otherwise, it can take a lot of time and expense to get through the courts. The deceased probably had paid a fair sum in legal fees to get the restraining order and who knows what else.

    If the community can help these children by donating for a funeral, that is a very REASONABLE and generous thing to do. Then, when the guardians can take over, there will not be this huge funeral bill staring them in the face.

    Please, be REASONABLE!

    A sign that funeral costs are now out of reach for the average person, if the Director of Information Protection at Hill AFB's estate cannot pay for a funeral.

    That's a high-ranking position.
