It was hard for them to realize they will never get a chance to see her again. But it turned out that some people couldn’t talk to their relative even when she was still alive.

Doris Day’s grandson, Ryan Melcher, claims he was banned from seeing his grandmother for many years.

Ryan Melcher says he got to know about the legend’ death like everybody else: from social media and other media sources.

Ryan had been cut off from his grandmother since his parents' divorce. How sad it is!

I received the news of my grandmother's passing like many of you.

One day, he was about to meet Doris, but her manager met Ryan in advance and asked why he wanted to meet Day.

I'm afraid you aren't going to be able to see your grandmother

The manager used his parents' divorce as an excuse for denying him access to his grandmother.

Ryan then decided not to push the matter further as he had heard Doris' mental health was deteriorating. He did not want to cause any further stress to her.

The dinner between my grandma and I never took place…. She instilled a drive and confidence that I will carry with me the rest of my life.
