this is my Aunt who passed away recently
she loved elephants (and had over 600 of them )
no not the real alive kind but the collecting kind
I want to put something in my garden to represent her
I am not sure of her favorite flower as she loved
many of them
I would love to put an elephant in the back garden
among the daffodils and bleeding heart
well, I was left in her will. Me and a cousin. BUT it seems
there is a catch. so be it. I dont really care but
my cousin is furious!
My Aunt had no children. she is the one a few years back I
did the 12 days of Christmas for and she got a kick out of it
she said all her friends would call her daily (who knew?)
to find out what present she got for that day of the song
anywho, seems a cousin and I were mentioned in her will
to inherit the life insurance policy. it was the first I had
heard of it. my Aunt never mentioned it to me.
anyway, I called the lawyer on my Dads letter (he was mentioned too and then his portion is null also)
and the lawyer said he was not sure how they wrote the will that
way because the insurance company will only pay
the person on the policy and if deceased they will pay the estate
(I am thinking her policy must have read to my uncle who has been deceased many years now)
well, I dont know how it reads but it seems like the boyfriend
who is in charge of the estate will get it.
I personally don't care. It touched me that my Aunt thought enough of me
to include me in her will. If he (the boyfriend) is not following her wishes,
I would not want to be him when I pass on!
My cousin on the other hand wont let it go.
She wrote to me and said she s going to find out more
and that she has some pictures of my family to share
and maybe an elephant! She went to my Aunts house and got them.
I guess the boyfriend didnt care about pictures and elephants
I am SO happy! I would LOVE to have one of HER elephants!
How cool is that???
to me it is better than any life insurance policy
even if it were lots of money.
THAT ELEPHANT means more to me..........
hopefully it is big enough that it can be seen
among the flowers.
I think Tia would be happy with that........
I know I WILL!!!!!!!!
rest in peace Tia....
