Post an article about a celebrity lacking estate planning documents, and the problems encountered as a result.  Do not repeat celebrities.  Recent news stated that Aretha Franklin died without a will.  Only one person gets to post an article about Aretha, but any number of you may respond to the post, if it adds value to the discussion.  There are countless other examples, including people who died ten years ago and their estates are still being settled.  You may go back 200 years in history if you would like. Things that would add value to the discussion include, but are not limited to, information about the person’s marital status, an estranged child, or other aspects of the person’s life that could make lack of documents especially contentious. If everyone gets along, they will work things out amongst themselves without a court order – but those situations are, sadly, fairly rare!
