While visiting one day, Joan says to Sally, "I want you to have my ring when I die, so I will keep it hidden under the rug for you. After I'm gone, come on by and get it." Sally says, "I accept your gift. Thank you." Joan dies a month later. Her Last Will and Testament says that Suzie, another niece, is to get the ring.

Suzie says she gets the ring because of the Last Will and Testament. Address Sally's and Suzie's claims and explain who gets the ring. Give the legal theory for your answer.
