Time goes fast
For a long time I haven't wanted to post here but it is time for an update.
My dad died on the 27th February this year which was sudden but he was 87 years old and had health problems. It was hard on my sister as she had taken our dad to hospital the day before. Our dad normally went to my sister's for dinner on Sundays and on that day he told her he didn't feel well enough. My sister went round to see our dad the next day and found him dead on the kitchen floorso she had to ring for the medics and police had to go round as well which was expected as it was a sudden death.
The coroner's office took it's time and there was an autopsy so it was just over a month later that the funeral took place. All they had to do was take a look at our dad's medical records to see how ill he was and taken his age in to account. The cause of death was as we expected but to this day I am still a bit upset about the autopsy. It just feels like disrespecting an elderly man who was poorly.
Due to what my dad left the will has to be dealt with by probate - my sister told me that an inheritance tax will have to be paid but that doesn't surprised. Apparently the will is quite complicated so a solicitor is sorting it out as well.
