Wills are for old people, right?


”I don’t need a will – wills are for old people.”

Aren’t wills just for old people? No, wills are for young people too. Wills are for people with families that will be affected by their death. We don’t know when we are going to need it, so we need it today.

I had a friend in her fifties who was killed in an unexpected accident, and another friend in her fifties who was suddenly diagnosed with late-stage cancer.  What is the moral of this story?  Don’t be my friend, first of all.  Second, be prepared.

We make all kinds of plans for our families because we love them.  Make a will for your family because you love them.  They will thank you when they realize how much easier things are due to your advance planning.
