             real property owned by the decedent on the date of her                   
                       FINDINGS OF FACT                                               
                  The decedent, Juanita F. Sirmans, died testate on                   
             September 7, 1990.  She was a resident of DeKalb County,                 
             Georgia, at the time.  She was survived by her son,                      
             Mr. Dan L. Sirmans, who was appointed executor of her                    
             estate.  Mr. Sirmans resided in Manilus, New York, at                    
             the time the instant petition was filed.                                 
                  At the time of trial, Mr. Sirmans held a master                     
             of science degree from Rochester Institute of Technology,                
             and he was in the process of completing his Ph.D. at                     
             Syracuse University.  Mr. Sirmans was employed by Rochester              
             Institute of Technology as an adjunct professor and by                   
             Carrier Corp. as a senior consulting manager.                            
                  In 1984, while the decedent was living in Atlanta,                  
             Georgia, she suffered a severe stroke.  After the stroke,                
             she moved to her son's home, which was in St. Louis,                     
             Missouri, at that time.  Mr. Sirmans soon realized that the              
             decedent was no longer capable of handling her own                       
             financial affairs.  Accordingly, at Mr. Sirmans'                         
             suggestion, the decedent executed a power of attorney                    
             authorizing him to act on her behalf.  Mr. Sirmans handled
