Pray for me

February 3rd, 2017 at 11:32 am

Some of you may know that my dad died last year. We were extremely close, anyone can tell you how close we were.

He left me charge of things. I was planning on moving into the home that he left for both my brother and I, and my brother has completely flipped. Basically dad changed the beneficiary on his accounts to me and told me to share it after all debt has been settled. I sat us all down and told everyone that's what I was going to do and my brother lost it. He says that the money is for him. Needless to say I decided to sell the house, split the money and send him on his way.

This is what happened yesterday when I went to show the house. I had to file a police incident.

Upon arriving to the home, my brother was outside on his bicycle riding, while his van, played loud music. I stayed in my car, at the neighbors, until the investor arrived.

Prior to the team exiting their vehicle, I walked up to their truck and explained to them that My brother maybe an issue. While doing so My brother continued to ride his bicycle in the road. As we approached the gate to enter the property, he got off his bicycle and approached the investor and his colleague and told them both that "they could not see the portion of the house that he reside in and that he had things in it and that he needed to clean up. " Mind you my attorney notified his attorney that we were showing the place.

At that point I informed the team that they may view the home and we walked off. While viewing from the outside of the home My brother informed them (investors) that "he was going to clean the property and have it ready for them." My brother has a number of items on the property in that are a code violation, that I will need to discuss further my attorney.

We entered the home, the investors viewed, and when I opened the door, to the middle room that leads to the second part of the house, things started falling, water was splashing as if the place was boobytrapped.

We then exited the home, and that is when my brother began recording us with a video camera and taking photos. I asked that he not do so without our permission and he continued. As we exit the yard he began to jump up and down, saying the following "Jah is King, fire fire fire, I'm going to burn you up, you're a bumbaclaud, fire fire fire, I'm going to catch you on fire, you let those white people tell you what to do, fire fire fire, I'm going to catch you on fire..." He continued to jump up and down yelling his explicit as the investor and his team got into their vehicle and left. At the same time I called my attorney so that he may hear the commotion and counsel me as to what our next step maybe so that this does not happen in the future.

Meanwhile a neighbor's friend who is leaving his home almost hit My brother with their truck because he is now in the road jumping up and down yelling that he is going to set me on fire.

I went to the police department who stated that they'll take note. This is the second time he has threaten to bring harm to me, once at my mother's home and again yesterday. Unfortunately, I did not have the incident at my mother's noted.

Keep me in prayer.


I've attached a few photos for you as well, he has been blocking the driveway of the home and

    I am so sorry to hear this. It sounds like your brother has mental issues; I'm sure that is no surprise to you. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. Laura S. Says:

    Thinking of you. I hope your brother gets mental help soon! Have you considered a restraining order?

  3. My English Castle Says:

    Oh my word, Amber. What an ordeal. Indeed keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.

  4. Amber Says:

    Laura I'm actually considering the restraining order. He's nuts.

  5. ceejay74 Says:

    Oh my goodness, Amber. Please be very careful and stay safe! It does sound like he's having a breakdown or has a mental illness.

  6. creditcardfree Says:

    Yes, I will keep you and your brother in prayer. I highly recommend a restraining order. It seems it will be really hard to sell home while your brother is still living there.

  7. SecretarySaving Says:

    Hi Amber! I'm wondering if you have a recording of him or something in writing showing the treats made against you. How can you have him offsite for a showing? What a huge disruption. The booby trap reminded me of the movie Goonies. He is definitely making things hard for you. I am glad you document and have a lawyer. It is to his benefit to not do that so that you all can get the most money out of the place as possible. I'm sorry this is a stressful situation for you. Keep in mind that it will pass. Honoring your father and his estate is what you are doing. Keep up the good work!

    Please be careful. Can someone go with you anytime you might be around your brother for your safety? I certainly will pray for you.

    That is so sad and I'm so worried for you. I'm also worried about your brother's wellbeing and definitely hope he gets some mental help.

    I am so sorry to hear everything you are going through. Frown

  11. Amber Says:

    Thanks everyone for your well wishes and prayers I truly needed it. It's both sad and heartbreaking because our parents did not raise us like this. To hateful, racist I'm not sure where he got this from.
    I've spoken to my attorney about moving forward and having him removed from the property while showing. As far as recordings I didn't even think to record him, but there were plenty of witnesses around.

  12. Dido Says:

    I am so sorry you are having to go through this.

  13. starfishy Says:

    so sorry you are dealing with all of this amber. Frown wishing you good luck and sending virtual hugs and strength to you.

  14. LuckyRobin Says:

    What a horrible situation to be in. I'll say a prayer for you.

  15. scfr Says:

    Amber - I've been thinking about you and the very troubling situation you are facing with your brother. I am so sorry. I hope the house will sell soon!

  16. alice4now Says:

    Thinking of you, and prayers of peace for you, and your brother. Sounds like he really needs some mental help.

  17. snafu Says:

    Amber, I'm so sorry this incident has been added to a difficult year. Praying for a peaceful, quick resolution to selling the house and having you brother in treatment he needs. I suggest using your cell phone to video any other incidents. I wish you'd ask for police intervention. Your brother needs treatment before he says or does something that can't be reversed.
    It's surprising how fast a lawyer can use up any value from the estate.

  18. livingalmostlarge Says:

    I am so sorry and keeping you in my thoughts.

  19. fern Says:

    I am so sorry. This sounds terrible. I agree with the restraining order. You will get through this.

  20. fern Says:

    It is good you filed the police report to document what's going on. And keep doing that if he keeps acting up.
