A: Without seeing the actual docket of the case I can only speculate, but the terminology "closed" can be confusing since the probate estate could certainly still be active, it just means generally that no petition is pending before the court since that Decree was entered on April 8. If you have questions you can call the court staff or meet with an attorney to review your next steps.
