With power comes responsibility

Now that my father has become totally incapacitated by Alzheimer’s, the mantel is now passed to my brother, as the older and favoured brother.

He is now able to control a trust with tens of millions in it and also my father’s estate that is worth millions. He is now a very powerful man.

But with that power comes a great deal of responsibility. He is now head of the family and what he does in years to come will define him.

Is he going to prefer his family to mine and when I mean mine, I mean to include Verity and any children that she may have in the future?

Indeed, is he going to prefer himself to me, as the other beneficiary of the trust and the other son? I really hope not. He must be fair and be seen to be fair.

Although my father always favoured my brother (that is very obvious), his Alzheimer’s “concentrated” this to the extent that he really wanted to crucify me.

I really hope that even given my brother’s new power, he is fair and, more to the point, treats me fairly. Maybe then and in time, there may be a way back for the both of us.
