It has been 3 years almost and close to resolution I think but relationships have been damaged. I was wondering if others have gone through it and family reunified in their experiences.
Didn't jespah just answer in the affirmative?

My grandmother and my father were at odds for years and finally she decided to write him out of the will. She died and it was a disaster. My father didn't want any money (and it wasn't like there was a lot), but some insurance policies paid out equally to beneficiaries and my aunt was upset that Dad received money even though it wasn't my grandmother's intent. By the time it was all over, they were estranged.
We went through a legal process to make sure we couldn't get anything from my grandmother's estate in Germany as there was already so much family strife. We'd had to do the same with the estate of one of my mother's brothers-in-law.
My parents didn't want to be caught up in the family mess.
