Dear Harry: My 88-year-old aunt died in January. Her younger brother lived with her at the time to help care for her. Neither of them was completely "with it."
She lived in her home for more than 30 years. She had two children who died back in 2000, and she had four grandchildren. Her lawyer prepared a will for her in 2008 which left all her possessions equally to her grandchildren. In 2005, they hired a housekeeper-caretaker who lived with them. A new will was prepared for my aunt in 2010 which left everything to this housekeeper with zero for the grandkids and my uncle.
