TMR in estate resolution mode

To everybody who has wondered where I’ve been over the past month:

As my aunt and I adjust to a world without the third member of our band, we’ve been spending our days attempting to resolve the legal details of my mother’s estate.

Mom’s been cremated, memorialized, and the little box of my mom’s ashes sits atop the refrigerator in the kitchen.

Regrettably, she left a complicated tangle of medical and financial bills unresolved, minus an estate or a will.

As a result, the aunt and I have engaged in the slow and laborious business that is calling and contacting her various physicians, insurers and creditors, determining who needs copies of her death certificate, and then faxing or mailing out the documents necessary to resolve mom’s obligations.

It’s tedious, tiring work, and some four weeks after my mom passed away, we’re simply not finished with the process of resolving the estate.

My hope is that I’ll only be sidelined for another 2-3 weeks, but I really can’t predict how long it will take for the aunt and me to chop the paperwork down to a manageable level.

I miss covering hockey, I miss interacting with Wings fans, and I hope that I’ll be able to resume blogging soon, but I simply don’t have a firm timeline as to when the estate resolution process will be complete.

My aunt and I are doing our best to work together as we adjust to life without mom.

I’ll be back as soon as I possibly can get back to the “new normal” routine of my daily life.

Thank you for your time, readership and support.
