James A Freaney, my father, was born on August 5, 1916 and passed away on January 8, 1998. I was the person that went through his personal papers, etc. and settled his estate. I was angry that he left me with a big mess - my totally dependent mother, manic-depressive sister and Donna. The living room was piled high with brokerage statements, articles, notes, etc. I tossed everything in site, anxious for a clean start. He had been giving me instructions on how to settle his estate since I was 7 or 8 years old. I was done! I tossed stuff I wish I had now, 20 years after his death.
