OMG....I had no idea how easy things are because dad took the effort to set up a trust. Thanksgiving Eve Dad decided he wanted to have Thanksgiving with Mom, of visa versa...not sure which. That means he had to leave us, since Mom has been gone 8 years. We know, without a shadow of a doubt he is with mom ( read my post "An Amazing Story). Needless to say as Trustee to Dad's trust I've been a busy beaver for the last few days. But it looks like, barring any unforeseen circumstances, it will be most wrapped up inside of two weeks (takes over a week or more to get the death certificates) and everyone will have their inheritances (minus what's set back for income taxes) and can go about their lives. I know I'd like to get back to my husband and my two dogs, my cockatoo and my Bearded Dragon Lizard (all of whom he's not so fond of taking care of). Dad made it so easy with the Trust rather then having to go through Probate and all that entails. When this is wrapped up, I'm going home and my husband and I are getting on Legal Zoom and doing a trust, without a doubt.
