Sibling steals dying father's money, leaves sister with debt 😡

The death of a parent is never easy, but it's made even harder when one sibling decides to steal from them. In this case, a sister promised to help her caretaker sibling take care of their ill father but instead stole money from his bank account. The sister even went so far as to use their father's card to buy herself alcohol. After their father passed away, the sister closed his accounts and took all the money, leaving the caretaker sibling with bills to pay and no food. As if that wasn't bad enough, the sister also refuses to give the caretaker the paperwork needed to switch the phone bill into their name, leaving them with a shut-off phone. Despite repeatedly promising to help, the sister is now ignoring all attempts at contact. The caretaker sibling has been forced to turn to extended family for help and is feeling guilty for causing drama. This situation highlights the importance of estate planning and the devastating impact greed can have on a family. Keep reading for reactions and comments on this heartbreaking story.
