Matt Gurney: A heavy-hearted culling of the heirlooms

When the topic of personal and household possessions comes up in the context of an estate, it's usually a matter of who is going to get what. Often there is a scramble to make sure everyone gets his or her share of Mom's or Dad's possessions. Rarely do I see any discussion about what to do with those possessions afterwards, or how beneficiaries are going to feel about them years later.

I have read an interesting article in the National Post that gives quite a different perspective to inheriting physical possessions. It's by Matt Gurney, who talks about what happens when inherited goods run up against realities such as small condos and future generations with no emotional connection to the items. I highly recommend reading this, as it just might change your mind about what you want to inherit from your parents or grandparents. Click here to read it.
