Re: Encouraging Parents to Put Final Wishes in Writing

PS - when (if ever) do you discuss writing wills with kids?

Re: Encouraging Parents to Put Final Wishes in Writing

When the kids are young adults, the conversation is more like, "We have wills. They are there with other important documents just in case...." Usually right before I get on an airplane.

I won't get more specific than that until the probability of death is much higher, if I get sick or aging.

I'm sorry you lost everything for your mom's wishes. Is there another copy somewhere?
