Why won’t The tribune do a story on my mom and what happened at Sunrise
My mom said to me ‘I knew you’d come for me. I knew you didn’t abandon me.’
These words will haunt me for the rest if my life. My mom is 94 and the police let Carol drug her and Sunrise helped Toerpe remove her from the back and the police didn’t even talk to her.
Nor did the Department on Health and Aging.
What the F is going on? A frail, elderly, 95 year old man being tasered and my mom being beat up by a so called “plenary guardian” Carolyn Toerpe.
And innocent attorneys like Ken Ditkowsky doing what’s right [telling the truth] and being disbarred?
Without the [probate] blog[s] no one would know of my mom or the horrors and whores of justice.
Every appeal I have had has been dismissed with prejudice just because Peter Schmiedel has asked for it?
from Gloria Sykes, younger daughter and excellent caregiver for 10+ years, named in her mother’s POA as preferred guardian.

Because of the blogs, thousands and thousands of citizens have exactly the same question, exactly what is going on with our nation’s court system and why are the clear laws being ignored, day after day, court date after court date?
I don’t understand either. Hundreds of people on this blog alone have asked me what is going on with Gloria and Ken and the ARDC and why are millions missing from the inventory of Mary Sykes, and no one dares to touch these questions?
Adam Stern said during Ken’s trial that “he investigated” and sent out subpoenas. From the Record on Appeal–the official court record, there were no subponeans sent out by him, no returns, no affidavits of service.
I challenged the Sykes court to show proof of service on Mary and her elderly sisters when I first started this blog in December 2011, and years later, no proof of service upon Mary, Josephine and Yolanda. The evidence consisting of declarations were published on this blog. No response from the court or the GAL’s but I know the GAL’s read the blog because from time to time they email me.
No answers, just question after question after question.
Gloria, you were a highly renown investigative reporter. When you ask the questions and no one responds, you know what is going on.
The questions have been asked. The court does not answer you. The GAL’s do not answer you. Peter Schmeidel runs and hides from us just as he did on Aug. 16, 2012 when you asked him just when was jurisdiction seriously considered before. He is a coward and a liar.
I think it is a great story. Millions missing, many questions.
My response is that it is clearly “the machine” in Illinois, which reaches from the politicians, to the elected to office, to those tied in with it, the zoning board, the probate court which benefits, to the actors in court which benefit.
Ken and I have stated it is a scandal greater than Greylord — no constitutional rights, elderly with paid up homes and bank accounts being declared incompetent by standing on a porch, Doctors Rabin, Amdur and Shaw never see the patients, but are psychics verified by their own court testimony, no hearings, no attorneys appointed for those that object to the guardianship, judges that say 2-1401 does not exist in probate, lie after lie after lie.
You know, it’s great fodder for a blog, for a political cartoon, for the inconvenient and embarrassing truth. We laugh and we jest.
But it’s the ultimate in horror show for the families that live thru this, the Tylers,the Drabiks the Sykes, the Bedins, the Wyman’s, etc.
It exists to the tune of Rosemary’s baby.
And and all I can do and all the families can do is pray and light candles and ask for angels. That’s what I do. Each day, every day. My hopes, thoughts and prayers are always with you.
May justice prevail and may the ARDC be not afraid to confront it.
