Sorry to hear about your grandmother.

You should contact the executor, who was named in the Will, to find out the status of your inheritance..  The executor is the person designated in your grandmother's Will as the administrator of her estate.  The executor may be one of the six other beneficiaries, who will inherit from your grandmother's estate.
