  • I don't really know... maybe it's grief or maybe it is just that now there is no one there to get them to keep their mouths shut... i just don't know

  • I hate when people die because thats when things get out of control, people start fighting over material things they feel they should get or things they bought the person while they were alive and then they want them backand of course money is always the main issue but it shows you the true personalities of people

  • I wish I knew. It's disgraceful & disgusting and a total disrespect to the deceased. Some people are so greedy. I am sorry you are seeing the ugly side of people. And I hope you will use your faith to get you thru your ordeal. (*Hugs!)

  • When my mother passed I saw first hand how people change both good and bad. I saw greed, people felt entitled to certain belongings, I saw people stealing out of my parent's home. When my uncle passed I saw an entire family turn on eachother. They ended up in court disputing a Will and fighting over assets.

  • I honestly don't know. But my mom's sister hasn't spoken to her since my grandmother passed away New Year's Eve 2004. Both families are split, it's sad but you see it so much.
