This is in California. I am the buyer in a real estate

This is in California. I am the buyer in a real estate transaction for which the seller is the executor for the owner who passed away. The executor has signed the sale contract as the seller on behalf of the seller's trust. We are about 7 days into contract. Yesterday, the executor passed away.
