Father's Watch

by Robert NH
(Roanoke, TX, USA)

Hello, my father died a few years back. I am the eldest of his three children. He and I did not get a long for the last few years of his life because of money. When his mother, my Grand Mother died, she left me in control of his inheritance. She left it to me to budget for him because she was afraid he would blow it. So I did. After that he literally lost his mind and hated me until the day he died (I regret doing that now). A year before he passed away he had sold a watch to a very close friend of his. He had owned the watch for more than 30 years and was very proud of it. Now my dilemma. I would like to have the watch. For two reasons, because it was his and because it is valuable. And truthfully, I want it for both reasons. I myself have become disabled and cannot work and do not have much money. Is it unethical to ask for the watch. I would be willing to buy the watch from his good friend. I just don't know how to go about it.

You have no right to the watch. He may sell it to you at fair market value.
