Another Government Employee: if_i_really_have_to: How do you plan an uncle? Surely in most cases, they're already there when you're born.

Vega.: The problem, according to Bonner's family who claims power of attorney

Uh, power of attorney ends the moment someone dies. Did the article mean personal representative of his estate?

/At least in Oregon that's how it works

I have so many clients who don't understand this, and get really offended when they are told that it doesn't matter that they are the dead person's spouse of 40 years, or child, or whatever, the person is dead, the only person who holds authority now is the Executor of the Estate. Often that's the spouse, but you can't just assume. Present the Will, money-grubber, then we'll talk.

/It's the worst when all the children are named Executors
//Family is never more venal than when they're after a dead person's money
///They always claim it's "not about the money"

No. It's about exacting revenge on the relatives for all the crap they caused. (Been there and done that on all three sides of the argument)


You've been the executor of an estate, not the executor of an estate, and the person who died?

Another Government Employee: Spartan_Manhandler: Mirrorz: Also "request" donations of 10% of the net income to members

Uh, according to the baptist church I went to when I was a teen, it's 10% of gross, not net. The preachers made sure to work that into a whole sermon about how we weren't giving them enough.

Yep. Gets put into a sermon every September or October when budgets are being formed.


I let a girlfriend drag me to a Baptist megachurch in Florida once. I got to listen to an hour long "sermon" about how the congregation needs to donate more, how it is ungodly to worry about the pastor's big house and fleet of expensive cars, and how the pastor personally knows "Brother Deon Sanders". It was almost enough to make me miss the boring Lutheran services of my youth. Almost.

It must be a miscommunication. No man of the cloth would lie about such a thing.

1. Whenever someone says "It's not about the money", you can bet your bottom dollar that it is most certainly ALL about the money.

2. Whenever someone says "It's what [Dead Person] would have wanted", you can bet your entire winnings from #1 that Dead Person never once mentioned it, and that it was, in fact, the absolute furthest thing from his or her mind.

3. Church.  Money-grubbing Con-artist trifecta complete.
