Everyone is right stay away from them or they will drive you crazy. People like that cannot be reasoned with. When there is a chance of money you see peoples true colors. Concentrate on those who support you and let them fight among themselves. When death comes you find out who are your true friends and who needs to cast out. These family members need to be cast out. Concentrate on your healing. I had 1 family member that was there for me and who is still there for me and she is my best friend my sister.
Love and Prayers

rena the moms are right.we went thru this when my mother died . thay all had hands out for money, no one wanted to help, my mother was dead not even 24 hours yet thay wanted money so sad thet ours family act like that. just handle them with a long handle spoon,an stay clear. peace and love to all of you moms.
Rena this is a time you find out who is really there for you. Death can bring out the worst in some people who are opportunistic. When my daughter died and we were trying to just see her and make arrangements to take her back to Texas for burial, her bio dad kept on about money. He wanted me to have her cremated because it was cheaper. Since it was something that SHE had never said she wanted I told him no. He said he would help if he could but it prbly wouldn't be much. Her bio dad. I couldn't believe it. I would have sold everything in my home if that was what it took and he just kept on and on about the money. I just wanted to see my baby. It is sad when this happens but I think it is even harder and sadder when it is family. I am sorry that you are going through this. I think the other MOMS are right though. You don't need those people in your life. We see it can change in an instant so why waste your time with them?
I am so sorry your family is putting you through even more pain. Do contact victims of violent crimes my paperwork got screwed up with them but I am going to be reimbursed for Jimmy's funeral costs. They also will help with a lot of other things like counseling, lost wages even if you have to drive a long distance for court they will help with gas or whatever. You have all the wonderful moms here to help you cope.
My prayers and thoughts are with you

Rena, I'm so sorry you have to go through this. I have found that even the best people can turn real ugly when the money is on the line. My husband has been real sick and not worked in over 2 years. We put all of Randy's funeral expenses on credit cards that we ususally use for his medications. The people at work gave a collection that helped but it was mostly credit cards. Since it was out of state, I had to pay 2 funeral bills it came to over $12,000. Not including the headstone. All my other kids promised to help, but they all have kids and bills, so we never asked for any. Luckily, we got his SSI approved yesterday and we can finally pay it off.
But my best advice to you, tell these vultures to hit the road! Put the money where nobody can get at it and be very careful of people. Don't let tantrums and bad attitudes wear you down until you give them what they want. You have been through enough already! Give them the BOOT! Love ya!
Donna, Randy's mom
