My father died January 2019 my mother died five months later June 2019 they both were obviously still married and I have one brother older and they had one granddaughter which is my daughter I wasn’t only not told of my parents death but when I talk to my brother when my mother died he said that I would get nothing of anything because they went to their deathbed hating me they both died of alcoholism and dementia and there’s so many personal possessions that not only were mine or things that were given to me by both of my grandma and grandma‘s on both sides of the family I had worked on genealogy for years and years and I know my daughter had told me that my first cousin and her sister‘s daughter who doesn’t know any backstory to any of our Family things as far as my parents wedding and stuff like that and has told my daughter she has all my parents wedding stuff and I guess when the time is right we’ll give it to her and I find that very disheartening and strange when they passed away
