TG, if I'm not mistaken, when someone dies intestate the State is normally entitled to a chunk of their money. Therefore freeze any accounts til they determine what they are going to get $ wise. Since he has a wife the amount will obviously be less, but they still want their cut.

Katie, prayers going up for that to be swiftly dealt with.

Send a message via MSN to kitchenelf
I will be removing all threads about wills and details and stuff like that. Please feel free to repost in this thread.

Let's keep this thread what it's intended for.

In the middle of the afternoon, someone brought 2 huge barbecued pork butts and a half gallon of barbecue sauce.
I'm sure that all that food won't go to waste at Sunday's birthday party. That sure is a lot! Good to keep busy and maybe you'll even get a chance to *cook.* That always helps me slip into my own thoughts and escape with myself.

You know Texas A&M has a wonderful tradition----every year on April 21 they have what is call to Revellie(hope I'm spelling that correctly) and any student or prof who has died during the year is remembered on that day. The Aggies gather wherever they are and it's global someone will answer to their name when it's called out..........nonone's name is left not answered to and my nephew was able to say "Here" when his grandpa's name from the class of 46 was called out.......it's very emotional and everyone celebrates their lives afterwards.....so it sounds like you're doing the same, Katie,

I just now found out about all this. So sorry to hear what happened!

Katie E., my prayers and thoughts are with you. This is all a shock to me. I read most of the thread, and started crying.

Thanks so much for checking in with us, Katie. We all miss you. As you go through these necessary steps, we are with you on each step, you know. So hard, so hard. I'm glad your kids are there and hope you are feeling some comfort from the many friends you surely have, both here and at home.
Saludos, Karen

I'll be praying to day for the day to be blessed with happiness, celebration, memories and all things good.

Wherever we are, any and all of us, at the hour of the service, we ought to say a prayer, plant a flower, sing a song, hug someone, bake a loaf of bread, something just for the occasion and in Bucks honor. I'll be in the air on my way to Kentucky and will arrive only 250 miles from the service city. I feel vacant that I'll be in the right state but for another event. It's an important one that I mustn't miss.

Happy thoughts to all in here today. I'm waiting for Katie's gift to arrive so I can send it in her direction via another....
