Do You Have a Living Will??

leave a comment »

One of my friends and I were talking about this very issue just a few days ago.  You know I think a fair number of folks have thought about this very issue but for most people they’ve just never done it for one reason or another. 

Recently I located a free resource where you can print out a blank living will specific to the laws of your state.  All you have to do is fill it out and have a couple folks witness the document…that’s it!!  What makes it even better is that you can specify all sorts of things for your family about your wishes, such as, what kind of music you would like to have played at your funeral service, who you’d like to be your pallbearers etc.  The sorts of things that make life easier for your loved ones if you can’t communicate with them because your incapacitated or dead. 

I know these are not things that any of us like to think about but if you love your family take some time, print the document and fill it out!!  One more thing, never put your living will in a safe deposit box…when it’s needed you may not be able to go to the bank to get it and nobody else will be able to either!! So, put it in a safe place and let those you love know where to find it in case they need it.

Here’s the link to get the free living will. 

If you’re one of our friends or clients we will also save an electronic copy after you’ve filled it out and give you your own secure, private access to our server.  That way anyone you share your information with can access your living will from anywhere at any time it’s needed.
