Why Do I have to write the same story about my mother, Why ? Let it stop in the Southermost Probate Court and Let it Stop Now !
By JAMES ELI SHIFFER, Star Tribune
Greer will be 86 in March. That month will mark the fourth anniversary of her strange journey through the justice system in which she overcame a life crisis but her assets disappeared with the approval of a Hennepin County judge.
Disturbed by the decisions made on her behalf, Greer repeatedly fought to regain control of her affairs. During that time, the guardian, Professional Fiduciary Inc. (PFI), and the conservator, Wells Fargo Elder Services, spent more than $600,000 of her money, much of it on health care for her that some family members called excessive. Nearly $100,000 went to lawyers.
"My money was all used up, was all gone, without my knowledge or OK or anything," Greer said.

This is a clear attempt to vilify and slander the family often without any proof and usually based on innuendos but short on evidence when a son or a daughter puts his career on hold to be there for his parents he is vilified and labeled a "Deadbeat" keeping in mind that it costs on the average $10,000 per month to keep the elder in a nursing home.
Elders are usually very clear about their preference to be taken care of at home.
I bet you that "deadbeat" son wasn't charging anywhere near that to lovingly take care of his parent and they were much better taken care off than in a nursing home.
When there is a disagreement like this the family needs compassion,and helpful advise not a bunch of opportunists to pile on like vultures or a pack of wild dogs
to take whatever they can stuff their greedy pockets with.
