I'm so truly sorry for the loss of your dear husband and for the insensitive , cruel treatment that you have been subjected to since by his family. Unfortunately, funerals seem to bring out the worst in some family members and the reasons for it never seem to make much sense.
I can only hope that your husband was able to make his wishes known before his passing and that that will keep the money grubbers at bay.
Again, I'm sorry for your loss, I know that it hurts and will for some time to come.

I've seen enough surgeons over the last few years.
