The common theme though in all this is lack of proper estate planning. Too many families think the heirs will work it out as they all love each other.

We’ve taken a financial hit, incurred more costs and all the vultures care about are what they can take!
At my FIL funeral my SIL put up a picture board of him with her kids. Remember they had been estranged for so long the "kids" were now ADULTS!!! Nobody fell for it and it was downright awkward!

Do you think their estate should have been left all to you, because you’re not greedy? How’s that silver swag you’re showing off doing?
Im sorry they passed, but everything else is part of that- and family will never behave as you wish them to in any situation. a reply to: JAGStorm

The death of a family member can bring out the best and the worst in relatives. Unfortunately the worst seems to always be more dominant.

My parents don't have sh!t, so all I will be left with is bills for their funeral. No other real close relatives, so nothing to fight over or worry about.
My wife will probably get a substantial estate/inheritance. I can see on her side some other family members looking for a taste as they know her parents are loaded.
