And when she dies, after inheriting your kids legacy, instead of leaving the remainder to your own children she will will it to HER family. Wouldn't a trust leaving your estate to your children with your widow a right to the income to support her as long as she lives not been quite so vindictive? What did you kids do to you to deserve this? ed

Family pieces should also be specifically listed in the will (or distributed now), otherwise they can be lost to the people for whom they would have meaning. From time to time I regret the loss of my grandmother's wedding ring which was covered only by verbal promises which weren't carried out.
