My MIL died recently and willed all to 1 of her 5 adult kids. The other four children were not even mentioned in her will. She had willed everything to her youngest originally, but about 25 years ago she had a "falling out" with him and changed it willing everything to her 2nd youngest son instead. Nothing for the daughter who lived in the same area and bent over backwards to try to help her and get along with her in her old age. Nothing to her other daughter nor her other 2 sons. No, she willed everything to her son that lived 1200 mi. away from her. We feel he ingratiated himself to her by whatever means and he had his sister bring her on a flight to stay at his house a few months before she died. He didn't even bother to call the other siblings to let them know of her death, he called the sister that brought her and she then called the others. We think he is fearing confrontation about the will. He duped my husband into helping him do repairs on her house, all the while knowing it was ultimately HIS house, as he was set to inherit it, unbeknownst to the rest of the family. We found out through county records that the house was put in a trust and he is the trustee. I'm thinking that pretty well locks everything up neatly for him, since he is successor trustee for the trust that holds the property. So I think even if we contested the will nothing would come of it. We now hear he is giving her household things away to neighbors and anyone but family. It is so weird, but I guess she really hated her other children. They are all great people with nice families. It is sad what she has done to shatter her family, must have had a heart overflowing with hate. I know one thing...the son that has gotten everything will never see or hear from any of his siblings again. I hope he has fun with the money because he has no family left that will have anything to do with him.
