Losing a loved one is never easy, especially when it's sudden and unexpected. A father of three, twice divorced, passed away two months ago, leaving his family to sort through his belongings and memories. His girlfriend of three years, who he had proposed to but never married, now wants two specific items from his estate to remember him by: a wristwatch and a silver bowl. The catch? These are the most valuable items in his entire apartment, worth around $10,000 each. With the family in need of money, they're faced with a difficult decision. Should they give her the items or keep them to sell and support themselves? 💔🤔

A Family's Heartbreaking Choice: Keep or Give? 💔🕰️

As this family grieves their father's sudden passing, they're faced with a tough decision. The girlfriend, who was never legally married to their father, wants his two most valuable items to remember him by. With the family in need of money and the girlfriend already well off, they're torn between honoring her request or selling the items to help themselves. As they navigate this emotional minefield, they must consider the value of their father's memory and the needs of their own family. Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🤔💬

Secure the home and change the locks. Executors can offer girlfriend first option to purchase items from estate. 🏠
