Those family reunions must have been fun

A murdered New York couple told relatives just how much they were loved -- or, more to the point, weren't loved -- in drafts of their will, according to the New York Post.

In the Post story, Mark Schwartz and his wife, Christina-Maria Petrowski-Schwartz let their family know just how much they were hated.

"To my brother who I know hopes to be in my will, well, here you are," chided Mark Schwartz, 50, as he bequeathed nothing to his estranged sibling, Robert, in an unsigned April 2006 draft.

In an earlier version, Schwartz had already left his brother "the sum of zero ($0.00) Dollars," zinging, "I believe this sum is fitting, as you are probably the most greedy person I know."

Petrowski-Schwartz first expressed her love for her children, Melissa and Nicholas. She then took an apparent shot at her first husband, James, leaving him no cash but decreeing that a "gift" of $10,000 be made in his name to a battered-women's shelter.

She also gave just $1 each to her mother, father, 2 brothers and sister, "and request that they donate same to their precious church to whom they had a greater allegiance, than to their first child and sister."
