Estate of Morton B. Harper, Deceased, Michael A. Harper, Executor - Page 21

                                       - 21 -                                         
          physicians, and the estate again cites concerns with the                    
          signature thereon.  In light of these concerns and the fact that            
          the letter does not appreciably add to the information reported             
          in the admitted medical records, we sustain the estate’s                    
               The estate’s final objection in the stipulation was to the             
          admission of Exhibit 29-J, a letter to Michael from decedent’s              
          doctor, on grounds of relevance and prejudice.  These objections,           
          however, were overruled at trial, and the document was taken into           
               Respondent in the stipulation objected to the admission of             
          Exhibits 33-J through 37-J, which pertain to the Hawaii                     
          arbitration, on the ground of relevance.  On reply brief,                   
          respondent expressly waived objection to these documents.                   
          Exhibits 33-J through 37-J are admitted into evidence.                      
               Respondent also in the stipulation raised relevancy                    
          objections to Exhibits 41-J, 44-J, and 45-J.  Since these                   
          documents (a photo of decedent taken in the 1950s and copies of             
          various checks written for gifts and charitable contributions)              
          all relate to periods prior to those at issue and do not bear in            
          any meaningful way on matters considered herein, we sustain                 
          respondent’s objections.
