I have three daughters. I have had a great financial turnaround and have a small spread, some stock and horses now. Deeanna, my youngest girl has only been with me for less than a year but she is the only one taking an interest in keeping my little spread going. My other girls have no interest in horses or anything and Deeanna does. Who do you think is named in my will to inherit my place?
Not so with my Aunt who left no will and did not do a succession on her husband. The damn lawyers and CPA have already been paid over 100 grand out of the estate. This cluster-fuck has gone on for over 6 years.
You know what is really sad? My two older daughters see Deeanna as a usurper not a sister. My oldest is even hostile toward her. Deeanna on the other has turned out to be a great kid. She has crawled under vehicles with me to help me remove a muffler or starter. She does not mind cleaning out the horse stables, tossing hay bales around. A couple of weeks ago my mom was in the hospital for a couple of days and Deeanna prepared dinner for me. Worst fucking meals I ever had to eat (and this is coming from someone who did over six years in prison) but I appreciated the heartfelt effort.
It is hard to believe that she was ever a city kid.
The well loved owner died a year ago. There were 3 children, one of whom was adopted. The adopted child (now an adult) was the one who was always there. Knew the business inside and out.
He got it all. Does a fantastic job of running the place just like his adopted dad.
You go for it Speedy! You leave things to the person who will take care of business - family and otherwise. Pay off the other kids a little, of course, but you leave the one in charge who should be in charge.:)
