Dying man chooses aunt over mother for guardianship, sparks feud 👀

A heartbreaking decision for a dying man has sparked a family feud after he chose his aunt over his mother to be the guardian of his one-year-old son. The man, who was diagnosed with terminal cancer, wanted to ensure the best possible care for his child and decided that his mother's household, which already had five young children, was not suitable.
