The probate process is a difficult situation for any family. When a loved one passes away, generally the next of kin will legally take over any assets that the deceased family member left behind wheater that asset is a vehicle, real estate, or golf clubs. The probate process can be a difficult situation for anyone to navigate if the deceased did not have a will properly draft, the process can take months or even years if the deceased had an extensive portfolio of assets to go through.
Most families do not live in the same town due to either work, marriage, or wanting to explore the world. Most families generally gather around specific holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year. Once a life is established outside of the hometown, few people visit as often and the connection to that hometown starts to deteriorate. The majority of people lose the connection and the only thing that gives them some sort of bond is that of family. Without that connection, a hometown is just a place where you are from.
