No. 20200460PR1 County Court of McLennan County, Texas On the 6th day of October, 2020, Temi L.

An administration is pending upon the Decedent’s Estate and it is in the best interest of the Estate for the Court to determine who are the heirs and only heirs of the Decedent. The Court has jurisdiction and venue is proper because this is the Court in which a proceeding administering Decedent’s Estate is most recently pending. Applicant is the personal representative of Decedent’s Estate. The names and residences of all of Decedent’s heirs and the relationship of each heir to the Decedent are as follows: Temi L. Stanford of Waco, Texas, Relationship: Spouse; Megan Arkan of Wimbledon London, Relationship: Adult Daughter; Christopher Abens of Corpus Christi, Relationship: Adult Son; Amy Abens of Denton, Texas, Relationship: Adult Daughter. At the time of Decedent’s death, Decedent owned personal property as follows: Description: 1725 Royal Oaks Dr., Waco, Tx.76710. Decedent was survived by the three living children named above. Decedent was not predeceased by any child. Decedent was married to and divorced from Janis Abens. They were married from August, 1983 to early 1999. He then married Temi L. Stanford. They never divorced and Decedent was survived by his wife. All children born to or adopted by Decedent have been listed. Each marriage of the Decedent has been listed. To the best of the Applicant’s knowledge, the Decedent died intestate. The application states that it does not omit any information required by the Texas Estates Code, Section 202.004, 202.005, 202.007 and 202.008, except as follows: None. There are no debts owed by the Decedent that are not secured by liens upon real estate and there is a necessity for an administration of the Estate. The Application states that it contains all of the material facts and circumstances within the knowledge an information of the Applicant that might reasonably tend to show the time or place of death or the names or residences of all heirs, if the place of death or the names or residences of all the heirs are not definitely known to the Applicant, except as follows: None. The Applicant prays that citation issue as required by Law; that an Attorney Ad Litem be appointed to represent the interests of unknown heirs; that upon hearing hereof, the Court determine who are the heirs and only heirs of Decedent and their respective shares and interests in this Estate; and that a necessity exists for an administration of Decedent’s Estate. Said Application will be heard and acted on by said Court at 10:00 a.m. on the first Monday next after the expiration of ten days from date of publishing this citation, the same being the 10/26/2020 at the Courthouse thereof in Waco, McLennan County, Texas, at which time and place all persons interested in this Application to Determine Heirship, are hereby cited and required to appear by filing a written answer and contest to said application.
