I have situation that I knew one come one day but really hated to think of it happening. In 2004 while visiting my sister and brother-in-law, he showed me several guns and knives he had since he was a boy in Jackson Hole, Wy. That day he informed me that upon his death that these were to be willed to me. These items are not of any real cash value, nothing that collectors would probably even look at twice. The only reason I would even care to have them is because they were his. MY sister passed away in 2005, and in 2008 my brother-in-law health deteriorated so much his daughter had to move here to take care of him. My niece and I have never been close and she didn't even bother to make a phone call to inform anyone in the family that he passed away. Trying to word this so it does not sound like I am wanting to take anything away from her, but I have so many wonderful memories of the man and a picture that has stayed with me for years. He was a very big man, about 6'5" lean and tough as they come, one rifle in particular was a Stephens youth model 22 cal bolt action and when he shoulder it it was almost comical as short as the gun was to his frame. Anyway it has been almost a month since he has passed and I gave serious thought to just leave it alone expect for one thing. The man/boy/whatever that with her looks to me like a hard days work would kill him, and the idea of a gun is just something he would have to a pawn shop as quick as he can get there. Guess what I'm asking would you follow up and ask about these items or just hold on to the memories of a the best man I ever knew.
