I WAS THINKING ABOUT COMING OUT BUT, FOR WHAT IS THE QUESTION. HE HAS SAVED EVERY PENNY IN A SAVINGS ACCT. HAS A IRA. IT'S ABOUT GETTING THINGS IN ORDER. I HAVE BEEN PUT ON HIS CHECKING, IRA, VAN UPON DEATH THEY AUTOMATIC ARE PASSED TO ME. IT'S HIS SAVINGS HE WILL NOT PART WITH. LIKE HE CAN TAKE IT WITH HIM.

I AM THE SOUL SURVIVOR FOR MY BROTHER, I NEED TO BE POWER OF ATTORNEY, ALSO NEED TO BE ABLE TO MOVE HIM AND GET RID OF ITEMS IN APT. HE NEEDS A DOG WALKER, A CARE GIVER, BUT WHERE??? HE IS A VETERAN, I LIVE IN DENVER. HIS FINANCES ARE UP TO THE GOVERNMENT, HAS NO WILL, DNR, DOES NOT SEE A DOCTOR EVER.
SAVINGS FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO TAKE. IT'S HELL. HE DID PAY FOR HIS FUNERAL/ CREMATION AND MILITARY BURIAL.
DO I HAVE TO BE THE BAD GUY IN HIS LAST DAYS, WE NEVER HAVE FOUGHT OVER A THING. SO NOW THIS COULD GET NASTY AND CAUSE HIM TO STROKE OUT! DUE TO WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE. I WANT TO COME TO K.C. SOON AND NEED A REAL LAWYER! WHO DO YOU RECOMMEND ONE BECAUSE TALKING ISN'T THE ANSWER. I HAVE TRIED BEFORE AND THE LAWYER WAS OF NO HELP AND TALKED ABOUT HIMMSELF, WHAT A MESS THAT WAS. PLEASE FIND ME A LAWYER WITH NAME AND ADDRESS, PLEASE. JANAA HUGE PROBLEM JONATHAN WILL NOT SPEND ONE PENNY OF HIS SAVINGS AND I NEED IT TO GET HIM INTO AN APT. CAREGIVER, ETC.
