Hello i have a very serious issue now

Lawyer's Assistant: Family law varies by state. What state are you in?

My mother just passed away and my father has the money to bury her but he has demenshia and refuses to pay. and his bank wont even listen to us. we are in Dallas texas

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

Not yet we just made all of the burial arrangements and then got to this road block. And the funeral is supposed to be the 13th of October. so we dont know what to do

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Nothing i can think off for now. my father is 83 years old and believes that he can do things one minute and the next minute he is like a little child crying
