Me too, Ann. You made your Mum come alive for us with your loving, tender, daughterly anecdotes about your life together. Your devotion for each other and the warmth of your life together chez vous tells of how great a wrench it must be to lose her now.
Even if you’re not a ‘believer’ you will surely feel her great love for you still lingers in every corner of your home, and will invest everyone of your thoughts and acton as you go about your sorrowful duties for her now.
We shall also shadow your footsteps in the days weeks and months ahead, opinions and views falling away in a quiet ministry of consolation.
Thanks so much Stella, that is very useful information.
Mum’s will is in English and as the Notaire can understand English there may be no need for a translator (I hope).
I have an appointment on the 12th March so will know then whether it will be accepted, or not !
Until I receive an act of succession her accounts will remain blocked, although the bank has said I can give them all medical bills, transport bills, and funeral expenses and this will all be paid from her account
That’s a relief because as Mandy already pointed out the costs are quite high, couldn’t believe that TVA has to be paid on ‘essentials’ such as the coffin. No wonder funeral parlours are springing up around our region, it’s really big business for just the basic of services!
