'Father-in-law died right at a week ago, wee hours of Monday morning. The mother-in-law has had several men and women, mostly from his Masonic Lodge, dropping by throughout the week and being almost belligerent about wanting stuff, not just Masonic stuff, and some expect things to be given to them.

I've experienced some folks playing the long game. "Friend" of my brother wound up with some very valuable land around Fbg. from my sister-in-law when a friend of mine had a buyer willing to sign a contract at a premium price.

A very close friend of ours, widow of a close friend of mine, at our church, naïvely invited several friends from church (and some of their husbands that wouldn't darken the door of the church) to come by their house and go through her husband's things. We were, thankfully, out of town. She ended the day crying at how people acted. One guy, that I'd pegged as a lounge lizard years before, particularly peeved her. Low-life PWT.

A relative of my wife's former boss went to her deceased father's house (her last living parent) and burned in the front yard things she didn't want, but wanted to keep her siblings from having them.

Whoever said "Death brings out the worst in people" wasn't just whistlin' Dixie.

End of rant. Any of y'all have stories?

Gossip dies when it hits a wise person’s ears.
Rumor and lies are created by haters, spread by fools, and unfortunately believed by the naïve!

When I was being treated for Stage IV Cancer 11 years ago, a very close family member (I won't say who) asked my youngest daughter if I was leaving them any money when I died.
Joke's on them...I'm still alive! And that person will not see a dime!

Yeah. It happened when my grandfather passed. The "perp" had no right going through his things looking for "mementos". The last time I saw my dad alive we drove to The Whittington Center to spend a day at the BPCR nationals. He told me he never wanted that to happen to him, and I made a promise that I'd never be a part of something like that. 23 years later I'm still honoring that promise.

Money makes fools out of many - when my parents passed my two sisters and I sat down and divided what they left us in a respectful way - equal all the way around

Greed is a sad thing in our world - it exposes many people for what they are

It's a shameful thing for sure. When my Mom did, her sister-in-law and my cousin wanted to stay the night in her house by themselves. Said they just wanted to feel her spirit one more time, NOPE didn't happen.
Needless to say, we weren't on speaking terms after the stink they made. They asked me instead of my brother, I told them he had control of the house since he was the executor of the will and wouldn't give them his phone number to try and persuade him.
They later gave us a list of things they wanted out of the house, they got nothing.

I despise this behavior.

My wife dealt with it with her grandmother with cousins grabbing momentos that she (my wife) had given her grandmother.

On my side, I'll never forget when my grandmother passed and passed the family homestead/farm in Iowa to a distant cousin/etc as he had convinced her the kids would just sell the place. I have many memories of the place as my great grandparents then grandparents lived there.

Apparently, it has turned into a bit of a money pit so I hope the californians are stuck with the pit as three of the siblings live within 30 minutes of the place. I dont believe a one of them would help out nor would I.

Yes. In fact I know a man in his early 80s. Being oldest in a large famliy, he has been saddled with several estate liquidations. He said looses at least one family member each time.

I mentioned some time back that my wife’s sister in law died of the virus and then her brother died shortly thereafter of what appeared to be a heart attack. That was last year some time. Their three completely worthless daughters immediately went to the house and found all the cash in the house and each one took a vehicle. They had to be threatened with arrest for auto theft. The cash went up their noses. The locks were changed on the house, and cameras installed. The worthless daughters had even more worthless druggy boyfriends, who would break in and steal things. This was one time that greed was not a surprise.

Over the years I’ve seen this sort of greed even from people you didn’t expect it from.

I have two brothers, both of whom I’d trust with my life or wallet, and we got into the whisky one day and got to speculating on which of our two sisters would show the greedy streak when our parents passed. We picked the right one. She took a few things and later denied it. But we know….

No, thankfully, I have not. I can’t imagine seeing something like that in my own family, at least not the portion of my family that I consider as such. “Vultures,” is a good way to put it.

I’m confident that my sister and I will do the same. There’s one family heirloom firearm that I will request (unless the will states otherwise.) Outside of that, she can have it or give it away. I could even be talked out of the firearm if it came down to it.

Creek, its eye opening to how people react to some material items up for grabs. We went through this with my MIL passing a few years ago.
5 kids and 3 of them were chit. Fought over anything that was available. Fortunately she had wisdom and left anything of value to the two oldest ( my wife and her sister). In the end its only treasures of the earth’s and not of heaven.

Those vultures are the scum of the earth and should be killed.
It appears that the “brothers” true colors are showing.

Sorry you guys have to deal with that mess, it seems the more money involved the crazier they get and those type of people don’t deserve to breath the same air as the rest of the population.
