I went to a meeting,about my grandfather's estate and his lawyer was there.He had his will made out 15 years ago.Every family member was there and I was happy what I got.I did get his vacation property,a huge chunk of money and and a couple old Winchester rifles from the 1880s.He passed away a couple weeks ago.I always liked staying at his vacation home as a little girl,went swimming in the lake and did some fishing.I caught a nice Bass once out of the lake.I also remember walking in the property seeing deer and nature.My grandfather and I went squirrel hunting back in the property a few times.He always told me shoot at the head.I was handed the key and two rifles.My grandfather had money,I am getting $225,000.00.It was estimated he just had just over two million dollars he never spent.
The two Winchesters,both 1885s I had appraised and I was shocked how much they were worth.I had Allen,my husband's co worker at work take a look at them and he said they are worth $2,500.00 each in great shape
I'd be more excited about the vacation home than anything else. Money comes in handy but it can be gone just as quickly as you get it. The memories that can be made at the vacation home would be far more valuable to me.
I'm sorry for the loss of your grandfather though:/
