"my uncle stole my grandfathers pair of lugers while the rest of the family was at the funeral.
this was in ohio, in '99. he sold them to a local shop for $300ea.
the police said there was nothing we could do because they were not specifically listed in the will.
the pawn shop had marked them up over $1000, so we could not afford to buy them back."
Man I would have fought that like mad!
In many states, anything that is not specifically called out in the will automatically goes to the principal survivor; your grandmother or his oldest child.
