""ruling from the grave instructions" (i.e. trusts cum wills cum POAs) "

My gosh, yes. I was shocked to see all the paperwork, with POA's (one each for me, my wife and our daughter, who is our backup trustee after we both go), the multi-page actual Trust itself, Health POA's, etc. More damned paper! (I think lawyers did all this to provide work for other lawyers... even if ours is/was a sharp guy and a good man.)

Shouldn't be so complicated, but our older daughter, as I said, saw her husband go through bloody hell when his mother died with nothing set up!
