Yes, yes....very sadly I got my daughter's money when she died, and when my parents died, I received a half share in a unit in inner Sydney plus some money...although it was horrible when they died, it was really lovely being given something for nothing, so to speak!

My grandmother left me a small amount of money, which was useful, and her fabric stash, which was unbelievably wonderful. I love sewing, as did she, and every time I use some of her fabric to make something I think about her and happy memories sewing together. And of course as she had been collecting fabric all her life, some of it is now extremely rare vintage fabric. All in all a lovely gift that will last longer than my lifetime, as I shall have several quilts and other handmade items to leave in my Will :)
Lovely :)

If you made that Verity you must be a very clever needlewoman - it's lovely.

My grandmother left me a beautiful bracelet. It is lovely to have something tangible to remember her by and I still wear it though she's been gone 20 years.
My mother gave myself & 3 siblings the same amount of amount of thousands of $'s when my father died in 1977. I used mine for our driveway, stone steps going up to our house & later the rest of the money was spent on a new verandah for our house that was built in '78. My mother gave me a beautiful blue 'stone' necklace from my grandmother a few years after she passed away. (I still have my mother & both of my in-laws.)

PS: Since writing the above, a brother/in/l died without leaving a will, so my f/in/l divided up his money, & also the money from the sale of his house for my m/in/l, my 2 sis/in/l's & my husband! My husband will probably put it aside for our 2 granddaughters, as we don't need it.

My Nana left me a little china horse that I admired when I was a child. I thought it was really sweet of her to remember.
Sadly no.
I ''will'' make it up when I die.
I have a friend who was left a house, at Manly in Sydney some years ago, that was facing the Ocean no less!!
My grandmother left me her jewellery and some money.
nice one :)

No.. My parents would. But I am least interested in that as foolish though it may seem, I don't want them to ever die
Unfortunately Smita, that is one thing we all HAVE t do regardless of religion, race etc!
But I understand exactly what you mean!

My grandparents left me small amounts of money that I used to add to my Royal Albert dinner and tea sets. Each time I use them I think of my grandies which is really nice.
No - I have never been left anything

I haven't, but I know somebody who has. Unfortunately, this person and others who had also been left something by the same person had to endure a bit of an ordeal when somebody had the brilliant idea to contest the will because they 'deserved more'. Funny, I thought had they deserved it, they would have been left more.

Yes, my Mother left her house to my Sister & I. It was a Rental Property, with much upkeep. We got sick of this; ACTUALY I got sick of it because I was doing all the work as my sister had four kids, of varying ages to look after. So it was sold three years' after mum died.

Also a friend of mine left me 'knick-knacks' to collect from her unit. As her family, naturally, would've had 'first pick' there wouldn't have been much left.
I didn't go & collect anything, as I thought this most macabre, actually.
Yes all nephews and nieces because there were no siblings of loved one left. Sad but very much appreciated
My lovely Mother -in-law left me and my children some money in her will, almost 14 years after her son, my husband had died.
It came at a time when it was needed desperately. I feel the angels were looking after all of us.
Yes - my grandmother, my mother-in-law and my stepfather.
I should have added my late husband too (I think I am still in a bit of denial of his death). Most of our assets were joint, with the exception of a few he left solely to my son and I.

No, even parents left very little giving most to a favourite half brother.
Mother in law well wont go there!
