Talked to Steve Martens today about his meet with the lawyer yesterday; Conclusion is that her will would be hard to break. I know I'm not in the mood to expend money or energy in pursuing this as some others have shared, its pretty much a dead issue.. Guess us poor folks will just have to keep on keepen on!
The Contested will of Nancy Ruth Botham only child of George J and Nellie Botham (deceased)Liberty, Missouri Estimated estate value 14 million dollars. In an unsound state of mind for a lengthy time did leave her entire estate to Richard Goodwin ( a non relative longtime companion) and North Kansas City Hospital. Steve Martens a first cousin is spearheading an effort to contest this will. He states that Richard Goodwin 83 years old with a bad heart condition and cognitive issues may sign an affidavit that he doesn’t want family money??? Steve needs contact info for the attorney to send out info to all parties that might have a financial beneficiary interest in this.. The attorney will work on a contingency basis with $2000 down to start the legal process. We would all need to contribute in this. Steve said that uncle George had promised to him, Larry Chestnut deceased and Paul Franz (cousins) a share in his will that Nancy changed after his death. The attorney needs everyone’s info before starting legal action.
