This is a sticky-wicket, for sure. I hope these people are telling the truth, and that they really were as much friends of the man as they say. I have a similar situation with a neighbor, who has asked to have me be co-executor of his estate. I accepted, but am very wary of the appearance to outsiders, distant family, and obviously attorneys. I have been friends, and more like family with this individual for over 25 yrs. But no matter, the handling of money in this type of scenario is bound to bring scrutiny. I am not sure I want any part of that. My relationship is based on friendship, not money.

The Whitneys' attorney, Frederick Fanelli, said the couple doesn't dispute spending money from Long. Fanelli said they had a decade-long friendship with Long and took him into their home in 2004.
Fanelli countered Monday testimony that Catherine Whitney paid herself $72,000 in a year, partially for realty business she lost while caring for Long, but had not made more than $18,000 a year before that. Fanelli introduced tax records showing her business made $79,469 in 2002 and was growing.

Maybe you should learn to read and comprehend She made $79,469 in 2002 and $18,000 the year before she took him in to her home, which was 2004. That makes the year she earned $18K 2003, which is after the year, she made $79K. You may now remove your foot from your mouth and your head from your butt
