I am very sorry to hear about your loss, Teresa. Please tell me:

1) Did your mother have a Last Will and Testament? If so, who is designated as the Executor?

2) Did she have any other children besides you?

This is not an answer, but an information request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. Thank you in advance.
