Or a white whine?

My father’s cousin (who died a couple of weeks ago) had migraines, and did quite a bit of research on what causes them. Of course, he would never give up smoking. Chris Buckley said his doctor told him that if he gave up smoking, he’d stop having migraines in five years ... and it worked!

The aforementioned cousin was quite wealthy and reclusive. (He’d been dead for some time before his neighbors called the police and the police eventually notified the relatives.) His last known will was dated 1985, when my father and grandfather were about the only relatives he was in contact with. We’re wondering if he left everything to my Dad! During the 90’s, he resumed contact with his sister and her children, so I’m sure he’d want them to benefit, but that will take some legal maneuvering. The surviving cousins don’t want anything except a few family mementoes.

The lesson is, keep your will up to date!

I just updated my will before I went to the class reunion. I usually do it every few years, or when something changes.
