    with something similar with regard to my brother. I can only hope that I do so with the grace that you have demonstrated.

      it is simply put one foot in front of the other... one step at a time.

      and, if things get "ugly" - get a good lawyer to help you understand what is legally and morally right.

      honor your parents by staying true to what THEY would want - and, as my parents gave me the guideline to life, don't lie, don't steal (and don't accept it when others DO...)

      i hope things go well for your family - what would help is if ALL parents make a will that is clear and file it with their attorney or a neutral party with no stake in the outcome.

      it takes away the chance for someone to get "carried away" and try to carry away everything.


      good luck on prevention instead of correction!

      •  A clear Will can also leads to years of whining (1+ / 0-)

        The beloved child finally read my Dad's Will and has been throwing royal temper tantrums ever since. I guess I can hope that s/he will get it all worked out of hir system before my Dad dies.

        Please, call me "Loris."

          my mom angrily told me she would NOT sign a will the week before she died because my sister "wanted everything!"

          little did she know that a "will" had already been "signed" - but not by her.

          sad, really sad!
