Screwed by Uncle's lover with AIDS
      03/30/00 07:51 PM

Screwed by Uncle's lover with Aids Can you believe this? My
uncle's lover, guardian and beneficiary of my uncle's estate,
leaves the fortune in turn to my father and my father's family as
my uncles had agreed. Only he sets up a trust in which the
fortune is allowed only to grow until my father's death when the
ballooned capital would be divided among my father's three
children. That wouldn't be so bad, and it does give us all 5000
dollars a year before tax. But the thing is, it stinks. My
uncle's lover was dying of AIDS and was so ashamed of himself, he
could only imagine his worth being measured in terms of the size
of his post mortum portfolio. He saw it growing over future years
as his physical being dimished daily. No one knew it was AIDS,
until we saw it written on the death certificate. His alcoholism
had ravaged his liver to begin with, and we all thought he was
dying from the drink. It was the ultimate irony. I was already a
year on monotherapy and knew I was positive for two years before
he died. I had discussed it with him, hoping for some support and
understanding as the only other gay man in the family, but he
responded with trying to have me written out of the will. It
would only be wasted on me. Luckily for me, the executor talked
him out of it, recognizing it as just another alcoholic rage. I
asked him once to leave something to AMFAR, but he said he
couldn't let the word AIDS be seen on his will. I had to
understand... Now almost 10 years with HIV, and 7 years since the
man died, the trust is worth 2 million dollars. Dependant on the
state, my income is minimal. My father doesn't like to talk about
the trust-- it's dirty money. But it would make a world of
difference to me. Even though I am named as beneficiary with
share of one third in the capital, I can do nothing to tap into
the trusts potential to provide far more income for all of us,
and provide my security living with HIV. Or? What do you think.
Does anyone know a good lawyer, or is this beyond judicial
intervention... Raging Bull
