Hi. My mother has just passed away. She was suffering severe dementia at the time of her death. All this had been kept quiet from me as I was working abroad with orphan children in Africa and my mum knew how important my work was. I hadn't seen my mum for just over 3 years. I did write to her often and was unaware that it was my aunt that had been writing back to me. My mother has left everything to me, her house and a large sum of money. She made the new Will just 8 months before she died. It was done with a solicitor but, he was a close friend of my mothers and would have done anything for her so? My sister is contesting the Will saying she wasn't of sound mind or mentally able to make the decision she did just 8 months prior to suffering severe dementia. I know why my sister has been left out, they had a terrible row 7 years ago and hadn't spoken since. I do suspect my mother made a bit of a panic decision in making the Will when she did but, I have noticed that the ''Of sound mind'' has been left out of the Will and I don't think she signed it either to be honest, I think my aunt forged her signature, but nothing has been said about that. I have spoken to the solicitor and all he said was ''Your mother was present at the making of the Will and they were her wishes''. And he wouldn't comment on anything else. My sister works as a carer and she said there is no way she would have been able to make a Will just 8 months prior to her death or severity of her illness. Is she right?
