Sorry to hear this Alix.... nobody should have to go thru something like that, especially at the hand of a "family member"

Not that there's anything wrong with that.....

I don't understand how they can take things just because they moved in to help take care of her. They aren't family. How can they get away with that?!
A little kindness goes a long way.

That's un-believable Alix. They shouldn't feel too smug though because they'll get their karma eventually. I hope your mom was neither affected nor hurt by their unscrupulous betrayal of your family's trust.

I cant believe someone can do that! Especially when they're family members. Take care of your mom. Thats the only advice I can give you now.

Thanks everyone. You warmed my heart when I was feeling really low and crappy. I am feeling better about everything now. Mom is feeling settled and happy in her new place, and she doesn't know about the recipe perfidy thankfully.

We do have a lawyer and we are dealing with all the monetary things that have been stolen, but its really a no win situation. Gotta find 'em (they've disappeared and every bill collector in the world is looking for them), and once you DO find them, you have to PROVE they stole everything. And no one really cares about recipes (except me).

Thanks for letting me vent a bit. I feel better sharing that. You guys really do understand it all. {{{{{{{{{{{{{DC Family}}}}}}}}}}}}}}

I really feel for you. We went through Alzheimer's and Parkinson's with my husband's parents, but we were overseas in the military. The resultant problems were very hurtful, although luckily not to the degree you're going through. I wish you the best.

I agree with Uncle Bob. I would hire a lawyer and see what -- not just the recipes -- can possibly be retrieved. And if not, I would send them to the hoose-gow. I don't care if they ARE family. REAL family would never do that.
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

That really sucks. I'm so sorry. For your mom and her recipes and your family.

Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.
