In the ‘Friendship’ section below I posted a couple threads about a friend I’ve had for a long time (decades) who has been controlling our communication (mainly phone calls), most likely because she’s under her husband’s thumb.

If there is a financial motive, it's because the deceased woman chose to leave (or took no action to prevent her son from inheriting) her assets. If she didn't want them to have access she could have specified it in a will. Apparently, it wasn't something that concerned her (or didn't concern her enough to prevent it). With that in mind, I don't see how accepting an inheritance (assuming there even IS one) would be considered being greedy.

It honestly wasn't meant to be snarky! You tried for as long as you could.... But its time to put your time & energy into something you want, instead of her crazy emails, be/c I don't think you will ever be able to figure out why she does what she does... KWIM???

I don’t think I implied that the act of accepting some type of benefit or inheritance was/is greedy – in and of itself – nor did I say they should refuse whatever she may have left to them.

Huh?? I didn't say or imply that I thought your comment was snarky.
