Writing or changing your will is a deeply personal decision. Many people feel most comfortable leaving what is left of their estate after their loved ones have been provided for. This is known as the residue of your estate, or a residual gift.
Other options include leaving a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your total estate, a percentage of the residue of your estate, or items of value (such as shares or real estate).
If you decide to make this very special gift, please let us know. It's wonderful to hear from those who’ve made (or who are considering making) such a great gift.
