Money definitely brings out the worst in people. I am curious though how she is able to do all this? Shouldn’t the other siblings like your dad be involved in these decisions and the disbursement of your grandfather’s belongings?

I have to say though- the snide comments about how your aunt can afford a vacay working one hour a week was probably a bad idea. To people like your aunt, that’s all the ammo they need to hose you over.

I’m sorry about your grandfather. Hopefully your fear about the funeral date doesn’t happen.

This is probably a dumb question but your aunt probably has power of attorney over your Grandpa? This isn’t what really happened to our family, but my grandpa started getting Alzheimers and had to be put in a home. He made my uncle power of attorney, not really being of sound mind when he did it and uncle took almost everything and never came to visit grandpa when he was ill. Once he got what he wanted he signed over POA to my mom and aunt so they could handle everything like placing grandpa. Basically all the responsible adult stuff.

It sucks that she got everything. Honestly, I agree with PP. It was a bad idea to say what your family said. It’s a hard thing to deal with if she was stealing money, but now she probably will just spite you guys. I hope she doesn’t sink that low though, and perhaps there is something you can do.

Good luck, and I am very sorry for your grandfather.

I’ve very sorry about your Grandpa. And I’m sorry your aunt is acting like this. It’s a shame, but money can do terrible things to people. I hate when people can’t let others have items for sentimental purposes. I’m sure that teapot and that bench woudn’t have brought her a ton of money at auction, but would have meant the world to you and your dad.

oh this is horrible. Money makes people crazy. Just pray she takes the money and goes far far far away from you and the still sane members of your family. Hopefull she wont make you miss saying goodbye but all I can say is prepare for the worst. Hold your prandpa in your heart and know that Karma is a big fat biotch!
