What to do if I do not understand my grandmother’s Will nor any information that the Trustee has sent me?

I need someone to read everything over and explain it to me in “simple” terms. Probate (not sure on what that is) is trying to be avoided. I need to sign documents and don’t want to sign anything until I understand it.

Do yourself a big favor and obtain estate planning/probate legal counsel to have them explain everything to you and guide you to the appropriate decision for you.  This would be called beneficiary representation, and is my practice to use an hourly rate for any time expended and needed to represent the beneficiary, based on a fee contract with an itemized billing.  DO NOT SIGN ANYTHING until you have legal counsel to advise you. You are wise to seek counsel.
