(Slate)   Dear Prudence: Can we do a Mother's Day edition where we talk about how to reconcile friendships, shaft one daughter in a will in favor of another, and a spendthrift mother who's about to die and siblings that won't pay for the funeral?   ( divider line

Sylvis: So, one sibling's husband is going around getting everything in her house appraised in front of the mother.  Prudence's advice is to give all the household items to the other sibling and let her decide what to give the one with the greedy husband.  And this is supposed to prevent problems between the two siblings after the mother's passing?  There must be some fundamental fact I'm just missing here.

The whole point is moot anyway; within a half-hour of the first time mom gets sent to the hospital, her house will be stripped bare of anything not bolted down. Doesn't matter what she leaves the good sister if it's all been stolen by the avaricious one already.

I don't have a problem with an elderly parent planning to give more to one child than another, but the state might disagree. Apparently, it's one of the things that will damn near guarantee a contesting of a will.
