    Lots of great info in this episode.

    Two comments about the will stuff, from my experience as a paralegal: Even if handwritten wills are legal in your state, preparing a proper will (and, in some places, filing a copy with the probate court) will alleviate a lot of uncertainty about people’s ability to challenge the validity of the will. Also, if you use an online site or software package to prepare your will, strongly consider paying a lawyer to spend an hour or two looking it over and checking for problems. The law changes a lot more quickly than software packages are updated, and having a lawyer look over the final document is a prudent precaution. Even once your will is done, you should consider having a lawyer take a look at it every few years, just because the law can be so fluid.

    As to living wills: Think very carefully about who you want to give your decision-making authority to, and try to make your wishes as explicit as possible. In a crisis situation, you don’t want your loved ones to have to make difficult choices because you weren’t clear about what you wanted. I need to update my will and living will to accommodate some life changes coming up here, and when I do, I’m going to give the decision-making authority to a friend who I trust and who has a little more objectivity than a closer family member.

    Happy new year, and thanks for all that you do – and glad to hear your sister’s doing better!
