To catch up on the Back story of my Grandmother - read here: http://romantictorture.blogspot.com/search?q=grandma
As you may know my Grandmother who raised me since 2 years old along
with with my Grandfather (he died 20 years ago), Died earlier
this year. If you read my past blogs you know that a couple family
members (mainly my Evil Aunt C & my Dad) are making waves, causing
trouble, claiming they want more of the estate.
My Good Aunt and
care of my Grandmother ever since Grandpa Died. They would take her
shopping, fix things for her, do chores for her, help her keep up her
house, take her to the doctors, host holiday & family gathers,
etc......and when it
was time, find a good active, attentive assistant living
community......then eventually handling the funeral arrangements.
Grandmother & Grandfather created a will together. They were more
than far. They
divided their estate 4 ways = 1/3 going to their 1st Daughter (my Good
Aunt), 1/3 going to their youngest Daughter (My Evil Aunt), 1/6 going to
my Dad and 1/6 going to me. Me and my dad split the last 3rd. The
reason my Grandparents did this is because They raised me since I was 2
years old with NO help from my Dad, their Son. He did not pay a dime,
nor he care for me in any other way, other than treat me as like any
other random child in the world. My mother & my grandmother (on my
Mom`s side) took me every other weekend and I would spend summers with
them. They would shower me in gifts and bought me anything that I
needed. My Mom saved up to buy me braces and when the money got stolen,
she saved it up all over again so I can get braces. They took me to all
my doctors appointments, took me to Theme parks, events, anywhere l
wanted to go. My Dad never gave my Mom any support and my Mom never
bothered going after any support from him.
Mom was not able to take me full time, but she made it up to me when we
got together. My grandparents were good parents and it was good to
have a Mom & Dad figure in my life. It was for the best.
grandparents were the Best parents anyone could ask for. Even though
they were strict, it didn`t bother me at all. I knew they loved me and
they were protecting me. I was not allowed out, unless it was for
school, rarely allowed to have friends over or visa versa, but I didn`t
need nor want to. We would go Camping all the time, they would take me
to all of my school events, they would let me dress the way I wanted,
let me decorate my room the way I wanted, all was good.
expected anything from them, I had nothing to do with their decision,
but I knew they felt an obligation to make sure I was alright. It makes
sense why they split their estate the way they did, however My Dad and
my Evil Aunt are furious and hired
every Lawyer to protest it.
I feel so sorry for my Good Aunt & Uncle having to go through
this. They were my Grandmothers Guardian since Grandpa died and took a
lot of responsibility, including handling the estate and making sure
everything was handled correctly and according to my Grandparents
I don`t know how this is going to all Play out. My
grandparents did put a clause in that said that if anyone protest, they
shall forfeit their share of the estate. I am sure my Evil Aunt and my
Dad have no merit and this will all be a hassle and waste of
time.....but unfortunately it will also be a waste of Money, my
Grandparents money, as I am sure will be the funds to pay these Lawyers.
Truly Very Sad. More to this developing saga to come, as everyday
brings another twist.
