35. It always pisses me off when a relative dies...
Because in come the vultures. You always find out who loved the deceased and who just loved their stuff. When my grandma Pauline passed away, his son couldn't be bothered to clean out her house himself. He sent his greedy wife. She was trashing stuff right and left. If my mom hadn't showed up, she wouldn't have known what was special to Grandma and what wasn't. We ended up with a trash can and several frames and the pictures and frames we had given her over the years. I wonder what happened to the picture of her parents she kept on her bedside table and the wahoo game we played when we visited. At least the really special stuff went to the grandchildren who loved her, like the ceramic christmas tree she treasured and the buffet she'd had for fifty years.

I'm so sorry you have an uncle like that. I swear to God, if, when my mother dies anyone comes in and starts to pillage, someone is getting their ass kicked. It makes me want to puke that people treat the lifelong possessions and treasures of their loved ones that way. They didn't love them. They were just biding their time until they died and they could have their stuff. I hope your grandmother finds out and kicks your uncle's ass.
