Dying Matters

Postby gardenlaw » Thu Jul 29, 2010 8:55 am

Should we help our loved ones by preparing better for our own death? I think we should. Second marriages and the addition of new members to your family are getting much more common. We owe it to the "family" we have chosen to create without any choice for them to make our wishes clear. A Will is only the start. This is a link to an extract from a book called Last Orders which makes the point

Very Interesting. I have already put all my affairs in order, including my funeral (arranged and paid for), so their can be no forseeable problems after my demise.

Cheers, Midori

Thanks for the link, very interesting.
My dad died last year and although he had always said he would leave everything to me, his only surviving child, he had remarried.
I wasn't even consulted about his funeral and treated just like any other mourner. His wife is the eldest of 4 sisters so I doubt I will ever get what I was promised.

Some parents do not desrve children when they do this to them

Are you sure there was no will or that his new wife did not destroy it so she got everything

Second marriages can cause so much heartache. If you feel you wish to challenge the situation from a legal point of view then time is of the essence. You could look at http://www.solicitorsfortheelderly.com/ ... hat-is-sfe to find a helpful solicitor.
