    I don't have much valuables and nothing really sentimental, prolly my pictures, but I don't think anyone will want those.

    So I'm good.

    We have lots of "family" things; the only thing we've specified is that they should stay in the family. If my sons don't want them then things from my wife's side go back to her sisters or nieces; from my side to my sister...

    I really have nothing to speak of, beyond the typical wedding jewelry. Of family significance is grandmother's china set, which I inherited a couple of years ago. My goodies will be divided among my son and daughter.

    Wills and "deals".

    Changed mine a few times. At this point - today - I simply cannot think about what for whom... it does not seem matter (to me, anyway)
    But, I'll probably change it to all (what IS) go to charity.
    Of course some details depend on how "judicious" the executor is...

    The people I care about know what I would want them to have.. so they could figure it out themselves. My financials I would probably leave to my council, but everything sentimental would be returned to whomever gave it to me.

    Well, if I go first, the hubby gets everything, with specific instructions to take care of my family.
    I guess when we have kids, we'll have to change some things.

    i made up my will about a year ago which everyone thought was nuts. i don't have much of value except for some sentimental things and a bit of cash, but i had a feeling that something was going to happen to me so i wrote everyone i loved letters. yup, i'm way paranoid.

    This question has actually been on my mind over recent months. My "kid sister's" husband died, and she has two girls no older than 10. So, with all their college years ahead, I'll probably leave the lion's share to them.

    Sentimental items are more difficult. I don't own any valuable objects, but some of my paintings feature people and places that are significant within the family. It will be hard to place these.

    this question made me think of a john prine song called "please don't bury me" -- it's really funny, and the lyrics are here:

    seriously, tho, whatever i've got goes to my hubby, my son and my daughter, and if not them, then it all goes to charity or anyone in the world EXCEPT my siblings...they get nothing...and they'll be the first to come looking, too...

    peace...

    The house and all its contents will go to my partner, who owns it with me. My jewelry and my boring books will go to my sister. My mom can have anything else, I guess. I don't really have much to leave anybody at this point.

    Its just a vicious rumour that Ive got anything worth leaving, well that the Ex has't already taken! ;o)

    My Watch to my newphew... my Platnum Ring to my Neice :o)

    Ciao Ciao

    I have a will. It all goes to my husband-to-be, my sister, my brother, with assorted momentos going to the specific people who would appreciate them or who would undrestand and appreciate their sentimental value.

    Fran gets it all, and if she's already gone or we go together, then Jen gets it all. Easy and simple, hopefully.

    Well I don't have a Will, but I'm thinking if I died tomorrow, my parents would get everything. I think I have them both on my life insurance policy. Of course my brother would probably take all my Madonna memorabilia.

    But I figure since my parents have pretty much supported me for the majority of my life, they deserve whatever I've got at this point upon my demise.

    Sorry to say I didn't divy it up individually. Sonny boy gets it all. Just think of all the cute jewelry he'll own!

    I do. I already gave my nephew a bracelet from his great grandfather that I had. 24 Kt Gold, they don't make them like that anymore.

    I guess I can donate my ashes so that they can make a diamond out of me. LOL

    To keep everyone from fighting over useless crap. I will order my things sold, and the poceeds split between my kids.

    If I was wealthy the Church will be the majority benefactor.

    i don't have a will. i guess i should think about that since i'm all grown up and stuff.

    i'd probably divide it up between my parents, brothers, sister, and my boyfriend. certain things to certain people. i'm sure i'd leave something to my alma matter as well.

    i find it morbid to think about it really...

    Everything I have goes to my son. He can do with them as he pleases. (I really don't have much) However, I do have two storage boxes in my closet with the things I want certain people to have. One is full of memories for my son, the other contains personal memories and old letters, journals, poems, etc. There are envelopes with memories from special people, and their names are on them, and there is a letter in each envelope. I do wish to be cremated as well. I don't have a will though.
