Do You Have

a Will?  We had wills done by a lawyer when Cassidy was a baby.  Now that she is about to turn 21, we are going to get our wills redone.  A lot of people die intestate (without having made a will)  and that can be messy, and relatives end up inheriting stuff they never would have wanted certain people to  have.  Also people end up fighting over the estate, and lawyers end up making money.

Yes, I had one made in 2002 when I was having surgery. Seemed like they were spending more time preparing me to die on the table, than to fix what ailed me! haha. Anyway, things have changed, so I definately have to have a new one made.

No, I don't.  I keep intending to, though. 

When my ex died, he had already prepaid his cremation, too.  That sure helped my kids because I was still sending Johnny college money at that time and didn't have the money to bury him.

 I need to put that on my to-do list.  Now - many of the investments have 'payable-on-death' beneficiaries.  That takes care of some assets, but there is still the house, car, etc.  Yes, that is something that I need to do.

We need a new one. Our girls are 18 and 21. We need to make it so our girls do not get all our assets until they are 25 or 30. We really need to make changes.

My dh has one but it is old. We have talked about this. We really do need to do one but I am worried that I am pushing my luck. IF we do one then something bad will happen. Silly I know. God is in  control, it is just a worry in my head.

Yes we have one, but is loooong overdue of redoing it. Our kids are grown now.

 All of the above you said is absolutely true. We dont have much at this point to leave but its still important to at least have your funeral wishes and arrangements taken care of ahead of time so your children don't have to do that.

I'm glad you brought this up. We need to make it a priority this year. Have you known anyone who used the online service Legalzoom?

I had one at home and then my house burned.  I keep saying I will go make one but haven't.  It's not like I have a lot anyway but I do know it's important.
