I know it sounds crazy, but I feel that if I make a will, I am admitting that I may die. Is this a common sentiment?
Yes. Most people have a very real hesitation to formally document in writing via their will or a trust, what will happen to their children, their home, their possessions and their money when they die. Almost without exception, however, upon completing the process, most people feel an overwhelming sense of relief that this “big thing” is taken care of and they do not have to worry about it any more and can get on with the business of living.
