My sympathies for your family's loss;
If there were any loans made by the decedent, then the personal representative can make a claim for those, and can pursue it in court for collections if necessary;
however, if the transfer was a gift, or an "advance on inheritance", then there would be no issue of repayment.
If it is an unsecured debt (so an actual loan) then it would be due and owing according to the terms of the loan, and the representative would have the right to collect on it as representative of the estate.
