My mom passed away last night. It’s a good thing as she had dementia and was living in a home that stunk.  Unless one is super rich all homes suck. I never want to end up in one. She is finally at piece and hopefully with my other family members.

 I just spoke with the her doctor and her death certificate says she died of dementia. This was so important to me.

 The people at PNC Bank are THIEVES. They want to charge 33 dollars to stop a recurring payment on my dead mom’s checking account.

I was expecting something completely different when I clicked on your post, but I can understand.  I send my condolences as it is difficult to lose one's mother under any circumstances.

The number of people with dementia gets undercounted so your insistence and your doctor's agreement is important for others as well.   You are also directing contributions to the right place.

Unfortunately, most banks are so rigid and inflexible when it comes to their customers and their needs, but anything seems to go when it suits them.  Hopefully, you will have time to reflect without them causing too much disturbance.

Thank you so much for all the kind words. That meant so much to me. Yesterday was the funeral and we had a great turn out from the supper small family I have. It was a great opportunity to see the family. It was a time for celebrations and a moment for me to realize that we need to get together more frequently.  I also learned how the lawyers we hire to do the will knowing absolutely nothing and do not have our best interest when we pay them so much money to create these. It was her bad written will that made us realize we had the same problems with our own will. Lucky, she did not have any money left other then a few thousand.
