             1.  a widow's nursing home was the beneficiary of her contested will
             2.  THREE PSYCHIATRISTS TESTIFIED AS EXPERT WITNESSES
             3.  NONE OF THESE PSYCHIATRISTS WAS PRESENT WHEN THE DECEDENT SIGNED THE CONTESTED WILL
             4.  one of these psychiatrists (Y) had only observed the decedent from a distance
             5.  there was marked conflict in the testimony of these psychiatrists
             6.  the court ruled that the patient was not shown to be mentally incompetent
             7.  nevertheless, the court voided the contested deed as a result of undue influence
                 having been exerted upon the patient
