Picture this: a loving grandchild gifts their dementia-diagnosed grandfather custom paint-by-numbers kits to keep his mind sharp. Over the years, the grandfather completes many paintings, and the grandchild cherishes each one. Fast forward to the grandfather's funeral, where the paintings are displayed, and suddenly, family members who had discarded their own paintings now want a piece of the pie. But the grandchild isn't willing to part with their precious collection. Is the grandchild being selfish, or are the other family members just being greedy? Let's dive into this emotionally-charged story. 😔💔

Should the grandchild give in to their relatives' demands, or stand their ground and keep the cherished collection? Let's see what the internet thinks of this colorful conundrum... 🎨🤷
