A couple of people have asked about L's home and the home next door to hers and what happened, now that she has died. Prior to her death, L arranged for all of her property to be put into a trust. She named a trustee and of course she has beneficiaries as well, and at some point the two properties will come on the market. Although it cannot be enforced, L wanted each property to be sold to couples with children and the trustee is aware of her wishes.
The process of distribution will probably take most of 2007, but I will keep everyone updated. Thanks for asking.
