Imagine you grew up staring at dad's "Dogs Playing Poker" painting in the den, and eventually the painting became yours. Now, your kids have grown up looking at the very same painting and all of them love it.
Even though your "Dogs Playing Poker" painting isn't worth much from a monetary perspective, it's worth a great deal in sentimental value. In fact, it's worth so much to your kids that they could end up fighting over it in court after you're gone. As such, you'll want to decide who will get the painting now, indicate it in your will and tell your kids about the decision.
