My father's aunt is 96 and has 15 heirs
She has two "piles" of money
One pile has been designated to be split evenly among the 15.
Pile #2 is designated to be split among 3 people. My father is one of them.
He is also the executor of her will. He is 78 years old.
His understanding of the will was that in the event he dies before her, his children would get his 1/3.
(I am one of them).
He now sees that there is no such stipulation, although it was her intent.
Can anything be done at this point to ensure we get our pop's inheritence in the event that he goes first?
His aunt is mentally incompetent at this point.

Consult with a local attorney. For one thing, your dad needs a Will. Second, an attorney needs to review the exact wording of the aunt's Will.
Your father needs to make his will. And to answer questions about your aunt's will I would need to read it.
