Shouldn’t it cause you more anxiety to think about dying without having one and having your intentions and wishes explicitly known?

When you reach that point and have to confront the reality that you will not be around forever, yep, that can be a little overwhelming for even the strongest of us.

It’s scary, that’s true.

Please take something from my story. My dad didn’t leave a will, and I still am not on speaking terms with my brothers as a result of that. I don’t know where all the animosity and anger came from but once dad dies and we had to try to work out the estate it has just been a mess that I wish other families could avoid. And the sad thing is that there really isn’t all that much to be fighting over and yet here we are. I don’t know that him having a will would have made things any better. Maybe the resentment would have still been there. But at least we would know that this is what he would have wanted. At this point we all have different ideas about what that is and it has taken a huge toll on the whole family.

William, thank you for writing about the problems this caused your family– it’ generous of you to use your experience to help others. I’m sorry for the confusion and animosity that you and your family are experiencing.
