Estate of Emanuel Trompeter, Deceased, Robin Carol Trompeter Gonzalez and Janet Ilene Trompeter Polachek, Co-Executors - Page 26

          finer and more expensive things in life, and he had the financial           
          means to fulfill his desire of collecting only the best pieces of           
          the items which he collected.  He was an astute and shrewd                  
          businessman who was very knowledgeable about and proud of his               
          collections, and he received much enjoyment flaunting his                   
          possessions before others when he entertained at home or was a              
          guest at someone else’s home.                                               
               In early 1988, the decedent divorced Sylvia Trompeter, his             
          wife of 37 years.  They had separated on August 8, 1984, and the            
          decedent’s relationship with the coexecutors suffered as a result           
          of his separation and ensuing divorce.  The decedent following              
          his divorce began devoting most of his time to his collections              
          and, more specifically, to the fulfillment of his intent to own             
          the world’s finest pieces in the categories of items which he               
          collected.  The decedent at that time had various female friends,           
          one or more of whom lived with him on different occasions.  In              
          addition to his motive of investment, the decedent collected many           
          of the referenced assets to impress these women.                            
               In early 1991, the decedent learned that he had terminal               
          cancer, and he relayed this information to the coexecutors.  At             
          that time, Gonzalez, the decedent’s oldest daughter,13 began                

          valuable as the other assets which he collected.                            
               13 When the decedent died, Gonzalez and Polachek were 38 and
