My parents are in their 80's and living at home, but mom has AD. They recently asked me to have financial POA and pay bills if one of them becomes unable to. I agreed. Dad gave me a lot of files which included their Will. I read it to familiarize myself with things and noticed that they have a trust and upon the death of the last surviving spouse the only beneficiary of that trust is my sister. I read through the entire Will, and my name is not included anywhere.
I asked dad if this was indeed the way he & mom wanted it. He said they tried to simplify things as much as possible and there should be a Trust Statement that mentions my name. So far, I can't find that but am still looking.
Regardless, I am so hurt that my parents didn't include me in their Will. It seems they wanted me to do all the grunt work, but didn't think enough of me to put me in their will. They only have 2 kids and I can't imagine why any parent would leave one of the out. Am I wrong to be hurt? Also, it seems if my sister is the only one named in their Will as being the beneficiary of a Trust, whichever way she divides up the funds is up to her. I feel like my parents completely left me holding the bag, while my sister walks off with the goods?? Thanks for any insight.
