Answer

Executor (male), Executrix (female) has the right to refuse this duty. It is best to seek legal counsel and one of you can take over the duty. It is best when making up your own Wills that you name more than one person as either Executor or Exectrix (or both.) In some cases, and depending on what State you live in this Estate can go to a "Trustee" and they will deal with it and you have the right to have a copy of the Will and be contacted if there are any problems with the Will. After Probate and all creditors and taxes are paid (can take up to one year) then the person "Trustee" can gather the heirs in the Will and distribute the money.
