I hope they put some of that aside, having to pay taxes. Since they aren't exempt its income.

Thanks for sharing the story, SG, it had me in tears.
Unfortunately it's already happening. They've had to move into a hotel because of threats and sudden 'close' family members. The grandmother is smart and set things up so that can't really get to the money outside of housing and educational needs.

The irony of this situation, is that this happened at the same Kroger that was in the national news last year for a not so great look for Memphis. Hopefully, he'll use this to his advantage and have a successful life.

Smart grandma! I'm so glad to hear she is doing the smart thing with the money. And many warm thoughts going out to Mr. White.
