Believe it or not, you have an estate, just like everyone else. Your estate is a sum up of your car your home, other real estate, checking and savings accounts, investments, life insurance, furniture, and other personal items. Unfortunately, you can’t take it with you when you die. So you will want to control how those things are given to the people or organizations you care most about. To make sure everything is carried out to your plans, you need to provide details explaining whom you want to get something of yours, what you want them to get, and when they are going to get it.
