A will is a legal document that transfers what you own to your beneficiaries upon your death. It also names an executor to carry out the terms of your will and a guardian for your minor children, if you have any. Your signature and those of two witnesses make your will authentic. Witnesses do not have to know what the will says, but they must be present when you sign it and you must be present to watch them witness it.
When it comes to our children, there is nothing we would not do to safeguard their future and ensure they are safe, healthy, and happy.
