Louisville, KY asked in Estate Planning for Kentucky

Q: Can a sibling obtain a gift from her now deceased mother, who was residing with another sibling back with with no Will?

The decease was living with her oldest daughter, and her middle daughter brought her a piece of furniture over 5 years ago. There is no Will & the middle daughter wants it back while the oldest daughter (whom which the deceased lived with for over 5 years) state’s no. Her reason for not giving it back is to pass it to her nephew who lives with her & whom she has full custody of currently. Is the middle child lawfully entitled to her “gift” back or no. Again there is no Will
