Family heirlooms help us connect with the people who came before us. It is difficult to imagine living a different way than we are now, but these items that are passed through time help us to see ourselves in their shoes. Seeing the face of a child or grandchild light up as they receive one of these special gifts is cherished. A Will is necessary to distribute these priceless artifacts to your beneficiaries according to your wishes. Quick/fill-in-the-blank Wills are easy and can be done in a few minutes and a push of a button, but isn’t that terrifying? This generated form isn’t specific to your life and your family. It doesn’t show love for those around you. It shows that you and your family are just another name, another family who needs a Will to help with their distribution. This feeling of unimportance is very different than when meeting with an attorney.
This attorney who is a stranger becomes a friend as they learn your face and your family. This simple document will have a voice, a character, to let your family know what you wish for them. Your Will comes alive as they are gifted your earthly belongings. The comfort that it brings helps with the pain of your loss. Those who have done the generated Wills come back to our office to fix what a generic form could not do. As the document is changed to be specific to their wishes, they spend more money than they had first intended. These clients always tell us that they wish that they would have come to us first and leave with peace in mind. Death is a hard discussion, but unavoidable.
