I'm no expert but seems it'd be a whole lot cleaner if you were his beneficiary. Could be there are other relatives who'd come out of the woodwork to gum this up for you otherwise.

As for estate taxes, the limit at which it kicks in is way high right now - 5 million.

But how to make it yours puzzles me.

Good luck!
