I lost the POAs papers????mysteriously wonderring if they were stolen or just lost somehow in transit
Expert:  Debra replied 1 year ago.

If she has a lawyer than simply send the will to the lawyer. In the covering letter say that you were keeping this for safekeeping but no longer are going to be involved in her life and do not want the responsibility of keeping this will safe.

That should be all you need to do and you will be relieved of any responsibilities.

emotionally very difficult for me to be in control of the situation. Am stressed and just told now I have a bigger hernia and inflammed stomach lining.
Expert:  Debra replied 1 year ago.

I am sorry to hear this.

You clearly don't need this additional aggravation and so it is a good idea to let someone else take over so you can heal in peace.
