Do you have a will?

It is a question I have been asked before. It is something every person should have no matter what their age or health condition. My answer to the will question is no, I do not have a will. I am not planning on dying soon, but who does? I'm young and fairly healthy....but death comes in other than health related forms. I could give up the ghost in a car crash for instance. Today I asked myself, 'What would happen to my kids if something happened to me and my husband? Who would raise them? Where would they live?' I realize how important it is that my wishes for them be made known and have a legal standing.

It would be so awful to lose your parents and then not know where you would live or if you might be seperated from your siblings. What of your parents had no living relatives? Your children might risk becoming wards of the state. Without a will there is no guarantee that your wishes will be followed.

I found a place online called where you can create a last will and testament and do things like name your child's guardian in the event that something happens to you.
