      b.   If a deceased person did not have adequate mental capacity at the time they signed their will;
      c.   If someone placed undue influence or pressure on a deceased person when they signed their will; and/or
      d.   If someone did not follow through with a promise to provide for you in their will as a result of services you performed for them.
