My mother will be 100 at Thanksgiving and is in stable but failing health.
I am a only child and there should be nobody to contest her Will, however,
I cannot find the original Will and all I have is a copy.
I do have the original Durable Power of Attorney prepared with the Will.
Mother has dementia and a new Will is not possible as I understand it.
The lawyer who prepared the Will is a childhood friend a now a
US Court of Appeals Judge. He believes that a probate court would
accept a copy of the Will if there are no challenges.
