I have no clue what these plants are. My mom just passed away. I would like to know what these are, and if they will live if cared for properly. Thank you so much to whoever helps me it means the world to me. My mom always believed in me I went through bad phases & without her I may not live the life I live now. It would be priceless to me. As I write this I smile though only because she would want that.

A variety Schlumbergeras

I agree. I agree The two Schlumbergera on the window ledge may be known by the common names Holiday Cactus, Christmas Cactus and/or Thanksgiving Cactus, depending on when they decide to bloom.
I see another smaller plant near the bluejay (my mom collected little bird knickknacks). I do not know what that small plant is.
Since the Schlumbergera are next to the window glass, please be careful that they don't catch a chill on cold nights. Oh, I almost killed my Holiday Cactus by placing it outside in the full sun; it got very sunburned and looked horrible for quite a while but eventually I nursed it back to health and was rewarded with blooms.

They are well cared for plants. If they like their location and their care, they will live a very long time, Best of luck. I am sorry for your loss. Your plants will be a treasure that you could end up handing down yourself.
