The Col did what y'all could have done- he wrote away to the government and got a copy of Paul J. Tate's probated will. The government has to give you copies of public documents, in between starting wars for oil and shit. You don't have to be a disabarred attorney from Torrance, California to understand what it says. Col Paul J. Tate, as an honorable man, HONORED his wife's unprobated (and thus not valid) will and provided monies to Debra Tate that her mother Doris (Gwen) wanted her to have, and past that, SPECIFICALLY DISINHERITED his daughter Debra. I am leaving out names that are irrelevant to our discussion.
FIRST: FAMILY. I hereby declare that I am a single man,
that I have one surviving daughter Debra ____,
and four living grandchildren,____,____,____,____.
My wife Gwen Tate and my other two daughters Sharon Tate
and Patti Tate have predeceased me.
SECOND: EXECUTOR. I name ____ Executor of this will…
THIRD: DISOPOSITION OF PROPERTY: I bequeath all
articles of personal property including
household furnishings, equipment, boats and
automobiles as follows: I hereby give certain my
tangible personal property to those named in a written
statement or list which I intend to be in
existence at my death, which statement
shall either be in my handwriting, or signed by me,
which shall contain a
description of the specific items and recipients
of such property. If not such
written statement or list is in existence
at my death, then all of such property
shall pass in accordance with the remainder of my estate.
In the event any person
designated to receive certain property in such written
predecease me, then such property shall pass
with the remainder of my estate.
As herein, the term “tangible personal property”
means articles of personal
or household user or ornament, for example, furniture,
boats, airplanes, and jewelry, as well as precious metals
in any tangible form,
for example, bullion or coins. The term includes articles
even if held for
investment purposes and encompasses tangible property
that is not real property.
The term does not include mobile homes, or intangible
property, for example,
money that is normal currency or normal legal
tender, evidences of indebtedness,
bank accounts or other monetary deposits, documents of
title or securities. The term does not include
property used primarily in trade or business.
SO WHAT PAUL IS TRYING TO SAY IS, EVERYTHING I OWN.
FOURTH: DISPOSITION OF PROCEEDS FROM SALE OF RANCHO
PALOS VERDES HOUSE: My
deceased wife, Gwen Tate, and myself owned at the time
of her death, our home in
Rancho Palos Verdesin Southern California.
It was owned as community property.
Upon her death, Gwen left a Will which was not probated,
but which Will
nonetheless devised her one-half interest in that home
to our then two surviving
daughters, Patti Tate and Debra Tate, in equal shares.
Both daughters survived
Gwen, however Patti subsequently died. I recently sold that
house and the net
proceeds came to $ _____. In order to honor Gwen’s
non-probated Last Will and
Testament, I am bequeathing one-quarter of the sale proceeds
to Debra Ann
______. This one-quarter interest comes to $_____. I may
even pay Debra this sum
prior to my death. Except for this one-quarter interest in
the proceeds from the
sale of the house at
, I intend to make Rancho Palos Verdes
no further devise or
bequest to Debra Ann ____. Should I disburse those proceeds to
Debra prior to my
death, then she will receive no additional portion of my
estate and I will in
that circumstance be intentionally disinheriting her.
When my daughter Patti Tate died, she left three children
____, ____, ____. To further honor my deceased wife
Gwen’s non-probated Last
Will and Testament, I am bequeathing to Patti’s three
children in equal shares,
one-quarter of the proceeds from the sale of the house
at Rancho Palos Verdes;
$_____ to be divided equally three ways or
in other words, $____ to each of
Patti’s surviving children. The shares to ____, ____, ____
are to be distributed
to _____ as Trustee, to be held pursuant to the trust
provisions set forth below.
THIS IS THE CRUCIAL PART TO UNDERSTANDING WHAT
TATE WANTED TO DO.
LET'S SAY THE HOUSE WAS WORTH, FOR THE SAKE
OF ARGUMENT, $100.00.
HE WANTED $25 TO GO TO DEBRA ANN TATE.
HE WANTS $25 TO TO TO PATTI'S THREE KIDS (VIA A TRUSTEE).
BUT HE SPECIFICALLY ASSIGNS THE REMAINING $50 TO BE PART
OF HIS ESTATE.
THE HOUSE SOLD FOR FAIR MARKET VALUE TO THE FRIEND OF NELSON,
SIX MONTHS BEFORE HE DIED. I AM PULLING THE SALES NOTICE, BUT
THAT THE HOUSE WAS WORTH AT LEAST $2M. THAT'S 500K TO DEBRA,
500K TO PATTI'S KIDS
AND $1M FOR THE ESTATE.
WHERE DOES THAT GO?
FIFTH: RESIDUE: All of the rest, residue and
remainder of my estate, whether real or personal
property, or mixed and wheresoever located I give,
devise and bequeath to my four grandchildren,
____, ____, ____, ____ in equal shares, per
stirpes. The shares to ____, ____, ____, ____
are devised and bequeathed to
_____, as trustee, to be administered as separate
trusts for the benefit of each
of my four grandchildren, or their issue should
any of them predecease me
leaving issue surviving. The trust provisions are
set forth below.
SO THE REST OF THE ESTATE, EXCEPT FOR THE NOMINAL
SUM DORIS WANTED DEBRA TO HAVE, GOES IN TO A
TRUST FOR PATTI'S THREE KIDS AND I BELIEVE DEBRA'S
So, Ladies and Gentlemen, unless I am missing
something here, WTF?
I have a damn list of WTF's?
1- WTF did Debra Ann Tate DO to get disinherited?
2- WTF right did Debra ever have to tell sites
that SHE owned her
sister's image when she clearly does not?
(It would have gone to Polanski, who gave it to the
Tate's, and would now be in trust for the 4 grandkids)
3- WTF does Paige and her peons have to say
about this piece of news?
Obviously her own father did not trust Debra to preserve
her sister's memory.
4- WTF does Stephen Kay say next time Debster
goes to parole hearings?
5- WTF do we have to do to get a beer around
Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for your time and input.
I have gone from defending
Debra and feeling that she was the wronged party to
now completely feeling ill at the thought
of my last position.
I am sure the comments will get hot and heavy,
wants to hear, and
hear now is WHY DID DEBRA KEEP THIS FROM
HER FANS ON PAIGE'S BOARD?
Someone get that woman some crow RIGHT NOW!!!!
