My uncle is dying of liver cancer. As executor of his mother's estate, he makes sure property taxes, for the farmland, etc. is paid for from the estate. My uncle, my mother and my aunt all inherited parts of the four farms from their mother. When the cotton is sold, a check for an equal amount is sent to each sibling. I don't really understand how this estate has operated since my grand-mother died in 1997, but I know that he still has responsibilities which need tending to. As my mother's Durable POA and sole beneficiary of her will, I'd like to know what to do. I'm not sure, if it will help any, but I do have a copy of my grandmother's will to see if a back-up executor is listed. If not, then what needs to be done? I'm not waiting for him to die because I'm already getting mail that shows me that some things are not being done because he is no longer able.
