Inheritance

Hello Arlana,

If the bequest is to an organization or institution it is proper to thank the family of the generous person. However, be certain you know the relationship of your benefactor to whomever you thank. If you are uncertain, perhaps he/she can be thanked from the pulpit by announcing your bequest, praising the decadents generosity.
