Please, Please Just do it! (Limericks)

Updated on January 8, 2013

There are numerous benefits in preparing the will while you are still of sound mind. The will gives you a peace of mind knowing that all the events surrounding your end of life, are executed in the manner that you want, and that your wishes are respected by those left behind.

Grandma was encouraged to write the will

She said there were too much to fill

She wasn’t ready to go yet

She had so many assets

She first needed to visit Brazil

The importance of preparing the will.

The will is an accepted legal piece of paper that details how your property should be allocated once you are called up yonder. It is legal document. The issue of preparing the will is a discussion that the non-senior citizen thinks ought to be discussed only among the senior citizens because this does not concern them. But the truth is, no one knows the time and place when the death comes knocking. A few are luck to know e.g. the ones on death row. Preparing the will ahead of time will help your family avoid conflicts, because it provides proper guidelines towards your burial arrangements, what property should be inherited by who and other details surrounding end of life activities. The will also guides the clergy or whoever is conducting the funeral services to lead the event according to the deceased wishes. The will can also list even very minor yet important details like the songs to be sung during the service, the speakers and those that need not to attend.

This legal document is exceptionally important for the ‘rich and the famous’. They should make sure that they keep updating their wills constantly, and every time their stocks goes up and/or as their wealth accumulates. This will save the family lots of pain, conflicts and division when the family member answers the heavenly call. It is also critical to say, ensure that the will is certified, validated, notarize or whatever it takes to make it legal, so that the family will avoid frequent trips to the courts to try and validate the authenticity of the will. If you do not believe me, just read the stories of the late Michael Jackson’s family feud and the late legendary car creator Caroll Shelby which took the family three months to come to an agreement and finally lay the legend to rest.

      Hello chepkoluumugulel, I appreciate that you open with a limerick to keep the topic light, (good one :) ) but you are right. This is serious stuff. It is so important to have a Will and a plan for taking care of things after we are gone. Interesting link to the Michael Jackson family saga. Voted up and useful.
