My mom has written out many pages of who gets what, some is favorite sweater or an old wooden step stool, things of purely sentimental value. Other items are a set of sterling silver flatware, some oil paintings, sapphire earrings, and are possibly very valuable.
Mom has tried to be "equal" but.....if the estate says everything divided in equal protions, does that override the "tangible personal property lists"? I am the Executor, so should I ask Mom to clarify this now? Some of the beneficiaries ate grumbling (of course) that their list of stuff is less valuable than another's.
