    My sister and I get our parents' house which has been mickey moused together by my father for years. Neither of us are keen on living in a house with labyrinthine plumbing or fake panelling so we'll probably raze it and sell the land.

    If it's in mint condition, it's already worth a few pairs of Manolo Blahnik's.

    I'm in the will of each of my parents. Mom has left me everything: specifically her furs, jewlery, car, house; and clothes. She is 5 inches shorter than me so in case of her untimely demise expect there to be a bunch of size 12 petite designer clothes to be sold on e-Bay.

    As for dad, he had a codicil added to his will back in the early 90's. If I don't marry a white man, I get everything. Otherwise his assets are to be liquidated and evenly divided between the NAACP, UNCF, Urban League, ACS.

    That twinge in your intestines

    Everything is to be divided evenly between my brother and me. Funny you should say that, though, njqt. I told my father that whatever he leaves me will be liquidated and donated to the NAACP and the Southern Poverty Law Center.

    He is determined to live forever, the old goat.

    My mom didn't have a will. We just all knew what we were supposed to get because she told us before she died.

    I don't know if my father has a will or not, but he's a fairly wealthy guy, and I would sure love to be in his will, but I have a feeling he's going to be giving it all to charity when he passes.

    I have no idea if I'm in anyone else's wills or not.

    I think an aunt is leaving me a bit.
    I inherited a bit from my parents ... enough to spend some time in Europe, go to grad school, and buy the car needed for my first job.
    I could have used it better ... and I could have used it worse.

    My grandmothers are both leaving me real estate. One of them will also leave money. My parents left nothing; both were very sick for a long time. Well, my mother did leave some bonds. My aunt left money, stocks, and a car. I'm leaving money and a car. Sadly, I've not updated, and if I die today, my evil ex inherits all. I'm sure my grandmother would see to it that such a will was disregarded. Monday I think I should update my humble little will, and contact my mutual funds about making my current boyfriend co-beneficiary with my godson and goddaughter. The stuff in my house isn't mentioned in the will. Maybe it should be. Also, my cat isn't mentioned. Hmmm...

    No way!:eek:

    I don't think anybody in my family has a written will. It's all pretty much verbal but we hope that they take their debts with them:biggrin1:

    Whatever our age we should all make a will, we never know when that big red bus is going to squish us and it makes things so much easier for our family if it's all down in black and white. A friend recently died without leaving a will you can't imagine the nightmares it's caused.

    I am in someone's will in kind of a bizarre way. It is the written instructions to reproduce a particular art piece years from now. The current piece has been destroyed and is in "instruction" form only. I am not to produce the piece until my 50th birthday and the piece is only (requested) to last for a set time before it is destroyed and passed on by instruction to a future art scene. It is not without burden, but also with a sense of joy.

    I asked my Grandfather to remember me in his will. He did. I didn't get anything but he remembered me.

    I'm in my mother's will. Her estate will be divided into 5 equal parts. One part for each of her four kids and one part divided between her grandchildren. She has a very extensive art collect which is worth a fair amount and the house is pushing a million. She's already given away her jewellery (I got the diamonds and my sister got the pearls) and the family heirlooms.
