"Where there's a will, there's a won't" - Joe Sinclair



Let's Choose Executors and Talk of Wills - by Joe Sinclair

Discovering your have been named as Executor in a loved one's last will may initially be regarded as an honour and fill you with pride.


But beware.


As an executor, you have a duty to perform.  If you are not prepared for it, it can be overwhelming.


If you don't want to pay for professional help, perhaps because you feel obligated to protect the inheritance of the residual beneficiary, you need to be aware of the enormity of your task.  You may be better advised simply to purchase the adjoining plot to your loved one in anticipation of a premature popping of your own clogs.


This is submitted as a cautionary tale for the senior citizen.
