Children attend their father’s funeral expecting an inheritance, only to discover that a stranger has inherited everything.

A shocking revelation occurred at a father’s funeral, leaving his children speechless. They arrived hoping to inherit his inheritance, only to discover that he had left his land to a complete stranger. The unanswered question: “What drove the father to abandon his own family?”On September 22, 2023, an anonymous female poster shared her story on the popular “AITA” subreddit.

She had been married to her 60-year-old husband for 20 years until his death from cancer. When he married her, he had two children from a previous marriage who were in their early teens. She, on the other hand, had a seven-year-old daughter from a prior relationship, and the couple had no additional children. The stepmother tried her hardest to treat her stepchildren as if they were her own, but they never completely embraced her.

Instead, they were continuously dismissive of her, accusing her of being a gold digger who had married their father for his money. Why Didn’t the Kids Like Their Stepmother?
What the kids didn’t realize was that their stepmom had inherited a large sum of money from her affluent grandparents, allowing her to live comfortably below her means and stay at home to raise her daughter. She didn’t need her husband’s money for anything. It was later revealed that the father had his motives for leaving nothing to his children.

However, the woman purposefully withheld this information from her stepchildren and even persuaded her husband not to reveal it to them since she didn’t want them to like her solely for financial gain. Despite his wife’s financial independence, the husband disliked his children’s behavior and open disregard for her. Their behavior was so upsetting that he refused to pay for their college tuition, forcing them to take out loans to pay for their school because their mother couldn’t afford it.

His children did not retain a relationship with him as a result of these events. “Even when he got cancer, they refused to come see him,” his wife stated. He battled his therapy for three years, during which time his wife’s daughter paid him visits when she could. The only individual who helped the couple during this difficult period was someone unrelated to their family. They were taken in by a young woman in her late twenties who worked as a waitress at a cafe they frequented.

She was a single mother who attended community college at night while working and raising her two children during the day. She was a tremendous source of support, spending time with the woman’s husband when she could, staying in the hospital overnight when necessary, and essentially becoming the daughter they hoped they had. What Happened Following the Death of the Husband?

When the woman’s husband died, this kind-hearted waitress assisted her in arranging his funeral. Her husband’s children were entirely concerned with their inheritance on the day of the funeral. “On the day, his children arrived, and all they wanted to know was about their inheritance.” “I felt sick,” the heartbroken wife remembered. It was later revealed that the father had his motives for leaving nothing to his children.

When the wife discovered that her husband had left her an estate worth around $25,000 after paying his debts, she chose to give it to the young woman who had provided them with invaluable support. Despite the waitress’s initial reluctance, the woman insisted on accepting the money because she believed she deserved it more than her ungrateful stepchildren.
Her daughter understood why she did not give the money to her step-siblings, but she was disappointed that she received nothing in return.

However, the woman explained to her daughter that she was financially secure because she had a job and would inherit her riches as well. Her husband’s ex-wife and children, on the other hand, reacted angrily, raising uproar and voicing their disapproval with her decision. They accused her of being ungrateful for giving them money they thought they deserved. Following that, the woman couldn’t help but wonder if she was in the wrong for her behavior.
