OPINION OF THE COURT

This is an appeal*fn1 from a decree of the Court of Common Pleas of Montgomery County, Orphans' Court Division, in which the trial court sustained objections to an accounting filed by appellant Louis Cusat as the administrator of the Estate of Louis F. Cusat.

Appellant raises two issues on appeal: (1) whether he is entitled to claim a family exemption as a member of decedent's household at the time of decedent's death pursuant to section 3121 of the Probate, Estates and Fiduciaries Code, 20 Pa.C.S.A. ยง 3121 (1975); and (2) whether he established that certain funds he received from the decedent were an inter vivos gift.*fn2 Review of the record satisfies us that appellant's claims are without merit, and we find no reason to disturb the trial court's decree.

Decree affirmed. Each party to pay own costs.
