Aww Christalyn....I'm so very sorry to hear of your mom's passing and of your pain. I'm horrid how such a sad event will sometimes pit family members against one another. Did your mom have a lawyer or executor to handle the will? If it's on paper and signed by your mom, it isn't contestable. I'm keeping you in prayer sweetie....this magnitude of stress is something no one should be asked to endure, especially not at this time.
Baskets of hugs and blessings dear Christalyn....linda ♥

Hope your well today. I friend requested you so I can send you a message about the Strong On Insulin Group meeting this Thursday.

Sorry to have been so long to reply to your message! As for your comment about me being so dapper in my uniform, I used to say people (in the service) used to say, "Hi Colonel," to my back, and, "Hi Chaplain," to my front! Approaching me from my back they'd see my Lieutenant Colonel's silver leaves, and from the front, they'd see my chaplain's cross! I'd answer to both... Chaplain ET.
