    So sorry for your loss. Hang in there and stand up to your sister, your Dad made the decision he wanted and that should be enough said.
    Take care of yourself, rest, and be with friends who lift you up.

    Goodness girl! How horrible! Hope you feel better soon or I'll be forced to drive up there with some malibu. Hang in there, I always miss you when you're not around here and your humor.

    Thanks everyone........I will need the prayers....maybe throw in a prayer that the stress doesn't take its toll on my body!!!

    DCat..........I have enjoyed the emails too..........always nice to
    get some 'good mail'.........thanks.

    Palooka---I haven't felt too "humorous" here lately but my sick humor showed up a little bit today when a friend stopped by and we were reading some of her TOTALLY WEIRD emails.

    Yes, my dad would be FURIOUS if he knew what she was doing..........but he also left the financial CRAP in a mess....still has mom's name on some of it........and she died in 2002!!!
    That is how fast he went into a depression........and then on
    into Alz. after she died. He didn't care.

    Will post estate info when I know it..........in another post.
    If I get this opened you will hear the yell where ever you are....trust me!!! Each plan gets more expensive.........so some lawyer will
    be making some money! (hope I picked a good one!)

    Has been he!! around here for awhile.........but with some prayers for STRENGTH to get through this..........I will!!

    Some might know........my dad died Sept. 9.........after a 7 year
    battle with Alz. that contains many of its own horror stories.
    (not the least of which created a totally dysfunctional family)
    No funeral---no service. BUT....I am executor.

    Two days after my dad died......my very best friend's mom died.
    I just could not make it to the funeral.....held way down in So.
    Idaho, but she understood.

    Both of these were older, failing, people but still hurts and darn sad.

    Two and a half weeks after THAT........my cousin's wife
    was making a left turn off of a busy highway, into their lane, heading home from work, when a 75 year old Swift Truck driver
    hit her broadside, pushed her down the road 300 feet, car caught fire and...........don't need to state the rest. (dead on scene) (two other people were lucky to escape only due to the passenger, the mother, in that car seeing him coming) Cousin was in a field (farmer), saw the fire, went to it, got to it in time to see the cops picking up the bumper with the license plate....and THAT is how he discovered who it was. Attended that funeral......so sad!!!

    Oh.........and the estate is still NOT OPENED.......big problems and
    too much to go into.........yep, could be a blood bath. And I am dealing with a VERY CONTROLLING sister with money......and everyone knows what money and power can do!!!

    ONE HELL OF A WAY TO DIET IS ALL I CAN SAY!!!! Hope the body
    holds up through all the stress, cause if she wants a fight......she
    has come to the right place...........I am about the only one that
    she can't manipulate with her fits and accusations!!

    Again........................WHAT A MONTH!!!!!
    FF Hugs and prayers coming your way. sorry about your dad, and cousin.
    Stick to your guns when dealing with your sister, I also have a sister like that. don't let her get her way.;

    So sorry you've been through so much lately. How sad that your cousin found out about his wife's death by picking up the license plate from her burned car.

    Right now, I would do more than punch my dad...........and I ask myself how can someone that hated paying taxes and govt. intervention, leave such a financial mess that most of it will be going through probate.............but the I am also finding out that he had A TOTALLY INCOMPETENT lawyer. My lawyer is just shaking his head at some of the CRAP!!

    Everyone............PLEASE......double check the will!!! There are some easy and safe ways to keep things OUT OF PROBATE.......depending on your states laws. Even a POD will
    work for some things............PLEASE CHECK.

    This is a mess that NO ONE should have to go through.

    We have a stipulation in our will that states: If anybody listed in the will contests any of our wishes, THEY GET NOTHING!
    or something to that effect.

    I think THAT part may have leveled out...........she isn't contesting the will...........

    Dad had a TOTALLY INCOMPETENT LAWYER..........and I found YET ANOTHER error today........so it is getting everyone on the same page for 'agreeing' about what to do to get it fixed/filed.

    Thanks to the lawyer..........(and partial family crap) it STILL ISN'T OPENED................so I have had to hire a lawyer to FIX WHAT HE SCREWED UP!!!!!!!!!!

    And I am not even to the financial crap yet...........that is a
    mess too!!

    Soon it will be TWO MONTHS.............and no will is even opened yet!!
