    Family fights over Kirby Puckett's ashes.

    Kansas City Star

    Puckett’s family fights over ashes
    Those closest to baseball Hall of Famer Kirby Puckett are disagreeing about who should keep his cremated remains.

    Attorneys are discussing whether Puckett’s ashes should be given to his two children or divided with his fiancee, Jodi Olson, who was living with Puckett when he died.

    Attorneys for both sides met Wednesday in Minneapolis but were unable to reach an agreement.

    Puckett died March 6 at a hospital in Arizona after suffering a stroke at his home in Scottsdale. His body was later cremated in the Twin Cities, and his ashes have been kept at a local funeral home.

    Olson has said she and Puckett planned to wed in June. Puckett got divorced several years ago from Tonya Puckett, the mother of his children, Catherine and Kirby Jr.

    I say his children should get them.. They are forever a part of him, and you never know what could have happened between him, and his fiancee. What does his fiancee get out of this? Feuding with his "real" family over his remains. Poor Kirby Puckett must be rolling.. Not even a legend like Puckett can rest in peace... What a shame..
