Money from Mourners
My father passed away recently and a card with memorial money was sent to me. Does that money stay with me or do I give it to my mother who is still living?

The money was sent to you to defray any expenses you may have incurred during your father's death and memorial. If you don't need the money, then use it to help your mother with funeral and burial expenses, or to help pay off any debts.
