Alicia Witt Addresses ‘Misconceptions’ About Sudden Parent Death

| Today Headlines | Local News

“I begged, cried, tried to reason with them, tried to convince them to let me help them move – but each time they got mad at me, telling me I had no right to tell them how to live their life and that they had everything under control,” she explained. “It wasn’t for lack of trying on my part, or on the part of other people who loved them.”

Noting that her parents “weren’t penniless,” Alicia said Robert and Diane “made choices” that she didn’t agree with and finally stopped “before asking the justice system to take control of two otherwise very sharp, very independent, very capable adult people.”

“They were a united, intertwined and indivisible force, determined to do things their own way,” she said of her parents. “knowing that they had met – fighting them like I should have to do that really felt like it would have destroyed them.”

Shortly before their deaths, the warmth of Robert and Diane’s home died out, according to Alicia; she said she will “never understand how or why they made the choice not to tell me.”
