My spouse will be receiving a $5000 inheritance from his late mom's estate. He was supppose to be her sole heir but she knew of his drug and alcohol addiction so she only left him $5000. Everything else went to her best friend. Her estate was estimated at a couple of million. He could have had it made had he choose to live his life differently. Anyway the sad part is he will be getting the money next week and I know that the entire $5000 will be spent on drugs and booze. He will be wasted until it is gone. To me that is so disrespectful because he knows his mom would not want that. This may be what finally does him in. I am not sure how Mich more his body can take.
