     (c) In preparing the inventory required under subsection (a), the personal representative may employ a disinterested appraiser to ascertain the fair market value as of the date of the decedent's death of an asset that has a value that may be subject to reasonable doubt. Different persons may be employed to appraise different kinds of assets included in the estate. The name and address of any appraiser must be indicated on the inventory with the item or items the appraiser appraised.

     (d) The personal representative shall furnish a copy of the inventory required under subsection (a), or a supplement or amendment to the inventory, to a distributee who requests a copy.
