I really had a shitty night of sleep, and woke up mad as hell. I was dreaming of funerals and how families are torn apart at the death of a loved one rather than being pulled closer together. I spent/wasted $3000.00 hiring a worthless piece of shit attorney in NC, to stop my sister, whom I still love and hate, from stealing and giving away everything my mother held dearly in her life. All of this because my mother the great CEO Entrepreneur/Lousy CFO, wrote her lawyer 6 months before she died cancelling a will that put everything into a trust for her boyfriend.
The act of destroying the will and not replacing it with another bothers me. My mother always had a will and often threaten everyone at one time or another that they would get nothing, even though she had little to give other than family items that had belonged to grandparents etc. All this did, when the family decided to put her to sleep, was create a huge problem for the family to sort out and it completely destroyed the relationship mom's boyfriend had with all members of the family. Needless to say he is now in bad health and no one gives a shit.
People if you love your family make preparations for your death because you are going to die. It is the price of this awesome ride that you are on that includes a trip around the sun. If you love your family take 30 mins to write out in your handwriting, and have two people witness that you wrote the document telling people what you want done with your mess when you die. If you love your family, and you have something to leave them when you die, appoint someone outside of the family to administer your estate. If you love your family, tell everyone out loud what kind of burial or service you want, your medical wishes, and your desires of your estate when you die. Stop using your estate like a weapon. When you're dead it will belong to attorney's and the State if you don't tell people what you want done with your things. You can spend your life making a fortune but it isn't worth shit if you don't take the time to protect it when you die. You may assume your spouse will get it all and you may assume your spouse will carry out your wishes but death is a trying time and there are people out there that profit from death and the confusion it creates. Make a will. If you don't know how, write your thoughts down on a piece of paper and have others witness it is your writing. Anything a Judge in a Court of Law can use to make sure your wishes were carried out. stop fooling yourselves into thinking you have time. The second you were born you began living on borrowed time. The clock is ticking and can stop at any time day or night.
