Let's say you and your husband are living with your parents on the family farm and your father is killed in a tractor accident.
While your mother and the rest of the family are in shock you grab everything you can. Your fathers horses, saddles and guns.
Haul all the antiques (er, junk) to the dump (Yeh, right! dump them in a safe place) for your mother so she won't have to
be burdened by them.
When asked about the horses, saddles and guns, you explain that Ken gave them to you. The dead can't defend themselves.
As for the, um, Junk, that you hauled away to the, ah, dump, why, you were just helping Mary over a hard time.
