Younger sister

Dear Queenie,

  My older sister packed up all the family photos and our mother’s jewelry after our father died and put it all in storage. She never asked if I wanted any of it, and there are some things I would like to have.

  Queenie, how can I get her share these things with me?—Younger sister  


Dear Sister,

  If you have access to the place where these things are stored, go there, go through the things and take the things you want, making sure to inform your sister about what you have taken.

  If you do not have access, and your sister will not cooperate, you may have to take legal measures, which could get expensive.
