Hello and thank you for your question again here on Just Answer.
I am sorry to hear about the death...
You cannot voluntarily dismiss a chapter 7 bankruptcy.
I am surprised the 341 has not occurred yet as it normally only takes about 30 days for the 341 to be scheduled.
If the debtor does not appear at the 341 then the trustee will file a motion to dismiss for not attending.
Otherwise you would have to convert to a chapter 13, then you could voluntarily dismiss the bankruptcy.
Please let me know if you have any other questions.
