Today we finally started getting things out of the house, and it has left me feeling sad and missing my mother. I am the executor of her estate, and truly wish that one of my siblings could take over. My brother thinks he is owed everything. My sister just doesn't know what to do. My mother had stage iv cancer, but her death was sudden, and didn't leave a will. I think, in part, she chose not to leave a will so as to not upset anyone. Unfortunately, it leaves me figuring everything out. I do have a lawyer, and am working on probate.
When I was packing my mom's clothes I noticed quite a few items missing. My sister lives out of state, so it wasn't her. When I asked my brother if his girlfriend took anything he denied it instantly. What is missing are things I purchased for my mom, and it just further adds to the pain.
So, I have to go back tomorrow to finish things up and now I am angry and don't trust them. As if things weren't bad enough already, his girlfriend had to steal from our deceased mother. Who does that? She also took 5 purses which were all gifts to my mom. One was an identical purse that my mom bought for herself, my sister and I. It's gone too. 😢
I haven't been able to process my grief because I am too busy dealing with the legal aspects. I'm not sure how much longer I can keep this up. Any advice on how to get through this nightmare would be greatly appreciated. I desperately need help. Confronting my brother and his girlfriend will only make things worse. Thank you.
This is also affecting my marriage from the sheer amount of stress I am under. We love each other dearly, but we just seen so distant since my mother passed. He also loves my mother, and considered her his mom (his passed almost 30 years ago) so he was very close to mine.
