People proud to 'spend' inheritance Dear Ann Landers: I'm writing about the greedy daughters who were upset because their father was spending what they considered to be their inheritance. Last year on my 70th birthday, I received this beautiful essay written by my daughter, Theresa Keegan Monroe. It will be too late to run on Father's Day, but I hope you will print it anyway. Thank you, Ann. My Inheritance I have something I want to share with you — I'm spending my inheritance. When I find the courage to stand up for my rights or the rights of others, I inherited that from my dad. When I look at the flag and feel an enormous sense of pride in my country, I inherited that from my dad. When I find the strength to tackle a problem that looks impossible or overwhelming and I stick with it, I inherited that from my dad. When I'm able to make people laugh — or better yet — laugh at myself — I inherited that from my dad. When something I do seems original or creative, I know it didn't come from out of the blue. I inherited it from my dad. When my friends come to me for help, and I take the time to be Ann Landers Letters to Ann Landers should be mailed to P.O. Box 11562, Chicago, III. 60611-0562 supportive, I inherited that from my dad. When my children get discouraged or disillusioned because of life's challenges and inequities, I say to them, 'Tf you can find some wisdom in my thoughts or some measure of strength and courage to face the future, you are welcome to it, because I inherited that from my dad." — Proud Father in Roseville. Dear Proud: Thank you for reminding us that parents are teaching their children every day by example — both good and bad. Here's more on the same subject: Dear Ann Landers: Can you stand another letter about inheritance? I hope so, because here it is. When my dad died several years back, he left everything to my mom. Her will states that everything she has goes to me. But because Mom was relatively young when Dad died, she is now worried that she is "using up" my inheritance. I've tried to tell her that what Dad left her is hers, not mine, but she frets about spending "my" inheritance to have her roof fixed or go visit her sisters. Will you help me get a message across to that dear woman? As I see it, I ALREADY have my inheritance from her. For one thing, I have her distinctive nose and big feet. She and Dad dragged me to church (I'm a deacon now) and sent me to college. I learned from my mom how to be a good neighbor and a good citizen. She taught me generosity and independence and how to find my way around the kitchen. In short, I've inherited everything I need to be a secure, productive, responsible adult. It is extremely likely that my mom will indeed "use up" my inheritance. In fact, she will probably need financial help in her last years, so I'm trying to set aside some savings now against that day. I figure I owe her, not the other way around. I feel sorry for those selfish sisters who begrudge their dad his home improvements because it means he will leave them less. They must be awfully empty inside. How sad. — Grateful Child in Raleigh, N.C. Dear Raleigh: Beautifully put. Thanks for saying it so well. What's your sign?
