The lawyer called again about this house. Apparently, Betty and Joey had only one living relative. She is Betty’s grandmother, who is ninety and in a nursing home in Queensland, Australia. She has Alzheimer’s, so isn’t in any position to get involved with intestate property. The nub of it is, we can probably stay here as long as we want, paying money into the same account as before. After that, the contents of the house will be sold. Someone will have to come and do an inventory. It is all too too sad.
We are missing Claribella very much. It’s at times like these that you need a cat around the place. They are such a calming influence, rubbing around your feet.
