Since my mother’s death in April, I have received some written communication from my “family” (using that term VERY loosely). Others have called my mother’s home. I can only assume that is some lame attempt to contact me. I have long since blocked their phone numbers so they can’t reach me, & why else would anyone call that number knowing its owner is dead?
Rather than speaking to these people, I figured since many are nosy enough to read my work, I’ll send a message via my blog. I may even add this as a page to my website since I know they also frequent it, not sure yet.
Anyway… onto what I have to say.
If any of you who are attempting to contact me are looking for some sort of handout, that is NOT going to happen. I will NOT enable your bad behavior (like your greed & poor money management skills), nor will I be anyone’s doormat. Find someone else to use.
If you want something that belonged to either of my parents: you need to realize the nastier, more demanding or manipulative you are to me, the less likely the chances I will give you anything. It doesn’t matter if my mother once told you that you could have some specific item when she died. What matters now is what is written in her will, & specific items aren’t listed. Since she assigned me as her personal representative, this means everything is now mine to do with however I see fit. I am boxing up some items to send to people she was close to. I will send them when I get the time. There is no need to contact me or to rush me. Showing up at my home or my parents’ home will result in me calling the police to have you removed from the property.
If you’re trying to contact me so you can share your opinions on how I am handling this situation, because I didn’t have a funeral for my mother or even because I had no relationship with my parents since 2016, I really don’t care what you think. Your opinions mean nothing whatsoever to me, & I won’t listen to them. Trying to contact me to share them is a waste of your time & energy.
If you harass me, some of you should know, I have saved evidence of your previous harassment. For one relative, I have plenty of documentation of your harassment dating back as far as 2013. I have plenty of evidence from the past, & will save any & all new evidence. I will involve the police if you force my hand.
To that one “special” cousin who showed up uninvited & unwelcome to my mother’s private burial just to give me grief, cause your big scene & refuse to leave, you astound me. You truly have NO class. You clearly also have zero respect. Obviously no respect for me which you’ve already made abundantly clear, but also none for yourself or my mother. You claimed to be at the burial for my mother, yet you yelled at & treated me like dirt AT HER GRAVE. No respect! Count your blessings I have the common decency not to act like trash at a burial, because that is the only reason I behaved as well as I did towards you that day.
I also want to say to my family: leave me alone. I have nothing to say to anyone, nor do I want to hear anything from anyone. All I want is for my so-called family to leave me alone.
No doubt by now some smug, “holier than thou” people are reading this & judging me for being angry. No doubt you also think that makes me bitter, unforgiving, a fake or a “bad Christian” as my family has called me before. It doesn’t. Even Jesus got angry. Several times his anger is documented in the Bible. Maybe if you actually read a Bible instead of twisting the few Scriptures you know to fit your agenda, you’d know this. You really should try reading the Bible sometime. You might learn something.
