Please accept my condolences on the loss of your father.
It's unfortunate that you've had a hard time with your dad's estate. It's very sad that you are estranged from your siblings. This happens a lot when someone dies, and it is very sad. You have to follow the Will, and as executor you have the authority to make sure the Will is followed. I cannot advise you much more without seeing the Will. If you send me a copy of the Will and your Letters Testamentary I will try to help you.
Once again, please accept my condolences on the loss of your father.
Please call me tomorrow.
