One of a Kind:
1951 Ford Crestrliner A big hit that year!
I have said this before, My dad told me when he moved to Belmont, NC that he finally decided to record a ‘Last Will and Testament’. When he entered the office he said to the attorney, “I need to make a will in case I die!”
He said the attorney looked at him smiling and said, “We need to get something straight Reverend, it is not ‘IN CASE YOU DIE’, it is ‘When you Die!’
We have a dear friend, her previous husband had died and she remarried, not unusual. But now that gentleman has passed and was sick for an extended time, knowing death was certain since there was no cure in the waiting. I was shocked and disappointed that he did not have a will. Thus leaving his wife in a bad position since now 2 families are involved.
Life today hinges on LAWs. The normal events and standards are: when a mate dies intestate unless unusual circumstances exist, all possessions legally go to the remaining spouse, as it should.
BUT IT IS NOT SIMPLE WHEN TWO DIFFERENT FAMILIES ARE INVOLVED!
Even a handwritten declaration is better than nothing. Death with a will is trauma enough, but leaving without a will puts a terrible load on those left. WE should not do that to the ones we love, it is not fair.
Have you faced any legal obstacles regarding the death of a loved one; or even wills themselves. I certainly have.
