Patrick Clancy asked people to “find it deep within yourselves to forgive Lindsay, as I have.” 

“The real Lindsay was generously loving and caring towards everyone – me, our kids, family, friends, and her patients,” his statement in the GoFundme update continued. “All I wish for her now is that she can somehow find peace.”
