I took care of Mom after my hubby died and saved her life at least twice. But they did us dirty, Vic, and broke my sons' heart; also my older son who regarded them as his family and loved my hubby like a father; he barely knew his bio father in Ga while growing up. My MIL/FIL had two sons, my hubby and a slightly younger one. The younger son was well known, in show business and famous. My MIL bowed and scraped to her precious younger son; they were very prominent people and well-known throughout Ohio, Ky & In.
You would know of them if I told you who they were, but I can't take that risk on these threads because of my Fl brokers' license, also in the same last name.(If you happen to guess, please don't use the name here, okay?) I also owned a well-known real estate company in Cincy of the same name which I brought to success without any of their help; my hubby was proud of me and helped me when he was in town.
I'm not going into detail about how much they hurt my son(s) SO BAD after his dad passed. I always knew they were phonys who cared for no one but themselves and each other, and wasn't at all surprised when Mom cut us out of her will. I didn't expect the old biddie to do any differently than she did.
Now you understand why I left them behind and don't want to befriend them or have them snooping in my facebook, so I just stay off facebook and turned down the one who tried to befriend me. I sometimes post on my b'day and thank everyone for the b'day wishes, and at C'mas to wish all a merry merry.
How hurt you and sons must have been. Well, you know you did the right thing. Big money does things to people. I rather be broke or living close and have the love of my family than all the money in the world.
