Its frightening to hear these stories, but thats how some folkslive I guess. My mom, who just had her 81st birthday, had me promise that the kids (us) wouldn't fight over their stuff. I think all us kids are pretty good and most are squared away and settled. But you never know what goes on in peoples mind. Years ago I got a set of dishes that were given to my parents when they married in 1950. The dishes are still boxed in the garage. My wife tells me to get rid of stuff not add to it.

Really sad to hear of your loss.
It happened when my father in law passed on, we only wanted the home movies and guns we had given him over the years. All that stuff seemed to have disappeared right after the funeral. (Step mother in laws kids took it all) Too bad because some of those movies where hilarious! Falling off the boat fishing, shooting a "slow elk" on accident (that's a cow for those who don't hunt) the farmer wasn't too happy until he found out it was full of disease then he thanked us.

Some people just live for stuff and not for the truly important things- love, family, friendship. Their loss and now she's in a home and we are the only ones who correspond with her! Not her blood family! SAD

My never-married aunt died without a will. She had my name joint with all of her accounts and had a quit claim deed giving my mother and me access to her house. She told me to sell her house and give the proceeds to my mother. She said she wanted everything else-money and furniture-divided between me and my 3 siblings.
We met at her house and took turns choosing a piece of furniture we wanted. I liquidated her investment accounts and bank accounts and divided the money equally between the 4 of us. No one questioned a thing. In fact, no one even asked how much money she had or asked to see any statements to make sure I was honest - they knew I followed her wishes explicitly. We went through the same process when my mother died except she did have a rather generic will. However, I had access to her accounts also as a joint owner so didn't need to probate. I just liquidated and split it up.

I do not understand families behaving so badly. They should be ashamed of themselves.
