I’m glad you availed yourself of your fishy windfall. Waste not, want not. Heck, I’d have done it! As FairyChatMom said, it’s not like you’re stealing jewels; and I know if I were dead I’d like to think that whoever got what was left behind would enjoy using it.
On a similar side note, I had a roommate years ago who died while she was living with us (in fact, I found the corpse, but that’s another story!). The landlady (who also lived with us) gave us her clothes to divide between my other roommate and me. (Helen’s relatives, I suppose, got her other things.)
Anyhow, I got some cool loot: among other things, a long fur cape and a pair of fabulous high-heeled shoes. I had that stuff for years, and we always referred to the items as “Dead Helen’s Shoes” and “Dead Helen’s Cape”, etc.
