In each case, when other family members found out (all of whom had siphoned thousands of dollars from said late loved ones, and had then raided their houses before the wills could be read), they went ballistic. We dealt with everything from people refusing to speak to us, to people spreading awful, unbelievable rumors, to threats of violence and armed break-ins if we didn't surrender the items to them. And people wonder why we spend our Thanksgivings at home, lol.
