Negotiations between parties were getting nowhere. Nina and Jean suggested mediation between the parties and finally mediation was agreed upon.
This would take place on April 23, 2014. Daughters, Nina, Jean, and Jane came prepared with their Confidential Mediation Statements and Submittals (over 200 pages) including fifty relevant documents. These were sent to the mediator as requested by him, prior to mediation.
The end result, which was substantiated in Court on April 29, 2014, was that the two oldest children of Lorraine, a son and Nina, would become her Court Appointed Co-Guardians and Co-Conservators. Lorraine would still be a Ward and Protected Person of the State of Minnesota.
