You have clear action that you can take about what was in fact theft in the money that was removed after the death of your father.
With regard to the accounting discrepancy then no you cannot do anything except confront them and ask them to account for what you perceive as the shortfall.
If they simply say that all the money was spent at your father's behest then there is very little you can do unless you can actually prove otherwise - although given what happened after his death there is of course very good reason to have serious doubts.
With regard to what you can charge - all you can actually charge is your out of pocket expenses - which includes lost earnings - so how much depends on what you could earn in that time. You can also claim your telephone costs and of course stamps and paper and printing etc
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
