my parents split when I was a kid, I just found out that my dad died in 2007. I had been sending fathers day and xmas cards to his address irregularly over the last fifteen years trying to reconnect with him. Not a single card was ever returned to me by my step family informing me of his passing. I finally was able to speak to his step daughter about his flag from his coffin and was informed that even though I am his ONLY living blood relative that the flag belonged to his step daughter and that I could NOT have it! DO I have any legal recourse in this matter or do I need and attorney???
