Are minutes of a meeting held from one’s death bed a valid will?
/

My mother had been in hospital on and off the whole of last year after being diagnosed with diabetes. Last October the doctors told us she had contracted an infection that would need surgery. Before her surgery she called us to her hospital bed. Our late father had left her many pieces of land and money in the bank account which she wanted us to have in the event of her death. She asked us to share these between me and my two sisters, a cousin of ours who is like a brother, and her only surviving sister, our aunt. All of us were in the room when she said this. My cousin wrote down minutes of this meeting and then we all signed it. Unfortunately she fell into a coma after the surgery and six months later she died. What I want to understand, are the minutes like a valid will?
