Plant isn’t doing so well. At first I thought I was over watering but I’ve cut down on the watering and the plant still looks like it’s dying.. please help as this was the plant given to my sisters and I at our mothers funeral. I really want this plant to live!

It does look like overwatering. Unfortunately, bacterial infections from overwatering won't resolve on its own.

Fungicides can help, but make sure that you change the soil out to fresh soil, as well. Make sure to let the soil dry out, completely, down to about 2 inches between waterings, and make sure that the container has drainage holes to let all extra water out. Dump any water that collects in the drip pan.
