AUBURN, Ala. — A family grieving the death of an Alabama-born woman has a request for friends and relatives: Don’t vote for Donald Trump.

Relatives of 34-year-old Katherine Michelle Hinds published an obituary Friday in the Opelika-Auburn News that includes the line: “In lieu of flowers, do not vote for Donald Trump.”

Hinds’ mother, Susan Pool, says her daughter didn’t like the presumptive Republican nominee for president and feared for the future of her three young children if he’s elected.

Pool says her daughter would have liked the anti-Trump message in her obituary although they never talked about the possibility.

Hinds died April 29 near Seattle, Washington, where she had been living. Her father, Allen Hinds, says an autopsy is being performed to determine the cause of death.
