Sarah visited only infrequently. "Those people out there hate her," a former Dillingham resident says. "All of Todd's family hated her. She never interacted with any of them. J.D.'s wife, Wendy, cannot stand Sarah. Sarah has always treated Wendy like she was a piece of trash. And she hated J.D., was always mean to J.D., was always basically like 'J.D.'s not comin' over here with his trashy friends,' and Todd used to be always like, "'I can't even have my own brother around..'"
J.D. and Wendy Palin divorced in 2012.
