OPINION OF THE COURT

Decree vacated and case remanded for an evidentiary hearing and to make appropriate findings of facts after ascertaining the competency of Dorothy Brandl and to establish a current record and ascertain the preferences of the children. A guardian ad litem is to be appointed for Dorothy Brandl.

MANDERINO, Justice (dissenting).

I dissent. The record does not sustain the trial court's decree involuntarily terminating the parental rights of Dorothy Brandl. That decree should be reversed.
