surviving spouse, or the guardian of the minor children, as the case

or any part thereof, any of the personal property of the estate at
its appraised value as shown by the appraisement; provided,
however, that property specifically devised or bequeathed to
another may be so taken, or may be sold to raise funds for the
allowance as hereinafter provided, only if the other available
property shall be insufficient to provide the allowance.
