Not sure if this is snowflakey, or just a bad case of counting one's chickens before they are hatched. Older man with few relatives dies under ambiguous circumstances (He was dead in his apartment for about 2 weeks.) Only close relative is a sister and her two grown children. Between waiting for an autopsy, and some personal problems, the executor hasn't been in contact with the sister in over a month. Now I understand that the sister is getting anxious about what her brother died of, and when he can be buried. Meanwhile, Sister's husband (and I suspect Sister herself) wants their son to come up and clean out the apartment as soon as possible. There's some family heirlooms, son's oldest kids moved out and can use some of the furniture, it's costing the estate a couple of thousand dollars a month in rent. What gets into the snowflake category is that they don't know what is in the brother's will. In fact, they don't know for sure if the will has been located yet. (Apparently, it is/was in the apartment.) It may well be that the whole estate is going to a charity.
Granted, the executor should be better at keeping in contact, if only to say that the autopsy hasn't been done yet, and the apartment is still considered a possible crime scene. But being a person's only living relative is not a guarantee that you will be in the will.
