Life - Knowing When To Fight.

Two elderly sisters haven't spoken in over 5 years because of a $500,000 jackpot.

$$$$ + sisters + stubbornness = law suit

Rose Bakaysa, 87, and Theresa Sokaitis, 84, stopped talking after Rose won the lottery with her winning numbers. When Sokaitis found out about her sister's winnings, she told Rose that she deserved half of it. Apparently Rose told Theresa that she wouldn't see a dime and, after a huge fight in 2004, the two ladies parted ways.


I get it. Money is a beautiful thang. It can give you total freedom and comfort. It can buy you things and take you places you never imagined. But, it should never come between family...right?

And, if it does, at least fight over a larger amount of money, like $100 million. It's kind of embarrassing to cut anyone out of your life for such a small amount of dough...unless you have nothing to lose.

Perhaps Rose doesn't care about her sister enough to want a relationship. Maybe she's over trying and simply wants to live for herself. It's not nice, but it's okay if that's what she wants.

Young or old, we all go through challenges in life. We all fight -- winning and sometimes losing.

Only you know what battles are worth fighting for.
