MIL told us she wrote them out of the will. I really hope so.

Warning: certain people are pretty much entitled to be mentioned in a will. If they are omitted, they can challenge the will on that basis and probably win a piece of the estate - a more-or-less equal share, plus perhaps their legal costs for the challenge.

Note, however, that the slightest mention qualifies. The will can contain a "The following people get absolutely nothing" paragraph, and that does it.
