                                        - 4 -                                         
          Hays changed decedent’s medication, prescribing a new                       
          antidepressant for her.                                                     
               After decedent’s suicide attempt, she tried to resume her              
          relationship with O’Brien.  The relationship did not continue,              
          and O’Brien seemed to lose interest in decedent.                            
               On March 21, 1997, decedent was admitted to Hoag hospital              
          for pain in her arm and neck.  At the time, she was taking five             
          different medications.  Decedent also suffered from a                       
          degenerative disc disease of the cervical spine.  On March 28,              
          1997, decedent received a cervical epidural steroid for her back            
          pain at Hoag hospital.  On June 5, 1997, at the age of 41,                  
          decedent committed suicide by carbon monoxide poisoning.                    
          According to Hays, several factors possibly contributed to                  
          decedent’s suicide, including the relationship with O’Brien; the            
          death of decedent’s cat; and a combination of prescription                  
          medication that decedent was improperly taking.                             
               Decedent was survived by her parents, Carl C. Hillgren and             
          Kay Schureman; by her brother, Hillgren; and by Hillgren’s                  
          children, Sophia M. Hillgren and Carl R. Hillgren.                          
          The Original Lea K. Hillgren Trust                                          
               On April 10, 1984, decedent established the Lea K. Hillgren            
          Trust (original trust).  Under the original trust, decedent could           
          revoke or amend the trust, in whole or in part, during her                  
          lifetime.  Decedent and Hillgren were named as cotrustees of the
