Hopefully, the last words you will ever speak will be your wishes in your Last Will and Testament after you have left this earth. However, if you don’t leave a Will, did you know that the law will decide who gets your money and property? 

And if you aren’t married and don’t have children or parents, whatever you have may go to distant relatives you haven’t seen or heard from in years, or whom you may have never met. 

A recent Boston Globe article depicted such a sad situation where someone that died neglected to “speak” their last words in a Will, creating unintended results to the detriment of his loving step family with whom he was very close for decades.

It’s your money. It’s your property. You earned it. Make sure you decide where you want it to go.  Do a Will and have the last words  you ever speak be your words, and not a legal statute.
