There’s nothing funny about making a will. The idea of it seems so depressing and well, final. So sometimes, you have to laugh.

A lot of us put it off until it’s too late. Why do we put off making a simple document that will make our family’s lives easier?

I can tell you that. Because it scary to think about death and dying, especially when we’re in our 20s and 30’s. But making a will isn’t just for parents and grandparents. It’s for writers, artists, aunts, uncles, and anyone who cares about where their money, stuff, and legacy is handled after they’re gone.
