Re: “A trust betrayed: Peter Kelly and the estate of Mary Thibeault

Many coments have been made without really knowing the two people involved,Mary T and Peter Kelly.This gift of money would not be questionable if it was given from a mother to a son and a grandson, and yet that is how she considered Peter.Her intensions were always to look after Peter who continued to always look after her for many many years,Mary was always very vocal about her feelings and although she spoke negatively about many of the othe heirs Peter was never one of them !The cheques signed by Mary were definately her signatures as I had seen it many times.
Being in her presence a week before her last trip to florida it was evedent that she was becoming much weaker and wanted to get things in order. She wanted to look after Peter and his son`s education before leaving. She would have signed these cheques before leaving and expecting him to cash them once her GIC came through The problem was that she died before this could happen. Many of the family members were aware of this and never questioned it as we felt Peter deserved any amount that he rec`d.I don`t know how anyone could see this as a criminal action and I am quite sure she would be now sorry that everything wasn`t sighned over to him.Things would have been much simpler!Most people ,and the media never want to hear any of the positive side only the negative. Tim never wanted to hear the good side, It never sells papers! Also , check some of your facts Tim! Mary`s relative and friend

Re: “Missing pieces in the Thibeault estate

I will try to answer some of the questions that I know.Mary had dual citizen ship in the USA and Canada. Mary gave Peter the control over assets to do what he saw fit. He offered the trailer to many of us but from my prospective it would cost more for the fees than the trailer was worth. Mary would give Peter post dated cheques to clear up any expenses that she incurred while living in N.S. for the summer months.We spent Thanksgiving week end with her in C.B the week before she left for Florida She appeared very weak and I felt that probably that would be the last time we would see her .However, she was still able to travel on her own and Peter would look after getting her to the airport.Mary wrote out a cheque and signed it and it was to be cashed when a debenture came through at the bank. She had intended to help Peters` children with their education. However , she died before Peter got to cash the cheque. This seems to be where the problem lies. If she had lived a few months later there would be no story.Peter got a small portion of what he deserved in my eyes ! There is much more to the story but no one seems to hwant to hear the good side !

Re: “Missing pieces in the Thibeault estate

As a relative and close connection with Mary over the last thirty years,it was Peter who was there every step of the way for her . She depended on him for everything and he was always there.I visited Mary in her trailer down in Florida (and would not have taken it if it was given to me.) Knowing Mary as I did,I also know that she would not have sighned a cheque if she did not mean for him to have it. I was told by Peter (after being surprised that he was given so little of the estate) that she looked after him before leaving to go back to Florida for the last time, in order to help with his son`s education and I was not surprised.Peter was like her son and not just a casual friend.Many times I quoted,"there would not be enough money to pay Peter for the care he is giving Mary" I guess it is difficult for people to think in this day and age that anyone does anything out of the good of their heart !So sad!
