Paging Mr. Kafka

In Order That One Does Not See, I wrote of my appreciation for the infrastructure that helped me deal with aspects related to my mother’s death.

I just had something happen which made things more difficult.

I do want to see things wrapped up properly, but my mother’s estate is very small to the point where I am very likely going to be out-of-pocket for handling her estate.

I need to have her mail redirected to me so that I can handle final bills. Canada Post did not consider her death certificate enough. I had to swear a statutory declaration which cost me $50. They then would process a mail redirection which cost just over $50. To get my mother’s mail redirected, thus, cost me over $100. I expect that this will end up costing me over $10 per item.

There is something rather screwy about this.
