My Mom has asked me to make sure that when she passes, not to notify her 2 sisters in Florida. They haven't spoken since my Nan died 35 years ago because her sisters threatened to sue me because my Nan and Pap, who raised me and had custody of me, left me everything in their will because my Mom's sisters were all married and had homes of their own but I didn't and was in college. They haven't even bothered with her as she has been dealing with serious health issues. They swarm in like a pack of vultures whenever a family member dies to see what they can get their hands on even though they are both wealthy. My Mom said she only wants a graveside ceremony with my brother and me in attendance and she wants her ashes mixed with her dogs and buried next to my grandparents. How do I go about letting her friends know when the time has come and honor her wishes not to have her sisters notified? She said she doesn't want them coming in at me again and fighting with me so that's why she doesn't want them notified. She knows how tough it was on me when I was 18, a college freshman, and having her sisters fight with me and threaten me. I had to leave school for a while because I had to spend every dime I had to hire a lawyer to fight them because I feel it's disrespectful for not complying with your parents final wishes. That's why I'm so conflicted because I want her friends notified and in our area, it's a law to have the obituary printed in the newspaper so it's officially on the record that the person has died. She has many great friends and I want them to know but I know her sisters still read our local paper online.
