Arnold executed a one-page will, in which he devised his farm to Burton. Later, as the result of a quarrel with Burton, Arnold wrote the words, "I hereby cancel and revoke this will (signed) Arnold," in the margin of the will but did not destroy the will. Arnold then executed a deed to the farm, naming Connie as grantee, and placed the deed and will in his safe. Shortly afterwards, Arnold married Donna, with whom he had one child, Ernest. Thereafter, Arnold died, and the deed and will were found in his safe. Burton, Connie, and Ernest claim the farm, and Donna claims dower. Discuss the validity of each claim.
