What does it mean Who said I may not agree with what you say but I will defend to the death your right to say it?

It means," No one has the right to silence another , nor allow another to be silenced because their opinions differ. It is every ones constitutional right to be able to voice their opinion regardless of how unpopular that opinion may be. It's called "FREEDOM OF SPEECH". If anyone disagrees with this answer, I accept that. I only hope they don't get together with others and start burning books again.

You signed your brothers death certificate and the lawyer said you are responsible for all his debts?

That doesn't sound right. Why would you sign a death certificate unless you are a doctor? You may have signed something that said you agree to be the executor of your brother's estate. In that case, you may be responsible for liquidating your brother's assets to pay his outstanding debts. But that would not require you to settle his debts from your own funds. You need some clarification from the lawyer, perhaps even a second opinion from another lawyer. Unless you were business partners, it does not make sense that you would agree to pay your dead brother's debts.
