Thank you all for this forum and your support.


I have lost both of my parents in the last 9 months.


The first words out of my brothers mouth was when he would get some money. That hurts more than anything else.

I'm sorry to hear that your mom has passed but glad she is out of her suffering. Yes, brother reminds us that life goes on. Please take time to mourn and adjust to the new order. You were loved by your parents and you loved them. The money can't compete.

katie - my deepest condolences on the loss of your mum, and, less recently, your dad. Losing both parents within a year must be very hard for you. Rest in that you have been a great daughter and caregiver, and that they are now together and at peace. Time to take care of you now ((((((hugs)))))

Katie, my heartfelt sympathy to you and your family. I see both of your parents were in their 90's. Last year my parents passed within 9 months of each other, too, also in their 90's. Now they are together again, as my Dad had missed my Mom terribly.

What a heartless comment by your brother. Some people just don't think before they speak.... [sigh].

KK, so sorry for your loss. Your brother isn't acting well. We understand and you fought for her comfort and care so your mom could stay home. Good and faithful you are.

Condolences, Katie. Seems to me that any dysfunction or personality issues in a person come to full light during the caregiving time and then when someone passes. I wish you comfort and please continue to stick around AC for the support that you need at this time. I'm glad your parents are at peace. You've done well by them. That's the very best we can do, I think. (((((Hugs))))) to you.

Katiekate - My condolences. I'm sorry for your losses and also for your brother's wretched attitude. I have one of those in my family who I'm sure will be saying the same thing.

KatieKate I am so sorry for your loss. My mom passed just a week ago. I know how hard this is for you right now. You have taken such good care of her and she knows it and is proud of you.

As far as I know, thank goodness that nobody has asked when the estate will be divided up. Course I was not POA or executor either. It may have happened. Do not let bro get to you, you may need to establish ground rules that you will let him know what state law requires. Here it is one year, other states may be different. Then leave it at that.
