  •  I have six coming (4+ / 0-)

    and I know I ordered one I won't need, so that should work.  It's a very simple estate.

    •  You'll be surprised (4+ / 0-)

      We ordered 15 for my father-in-law, and barely had enough (mom-in-law still has a couple in her file, just in case).

      Guess it's a case of never being too rich, too thin, or having too many death certificates.

      Oh, and a personal note: if Jim had power of attorney for your affairs should you become impaired, make sure you get those powers to someone else you trust ASAP. When my father-in-law had his stroke, my mother-in-law had to handle all that stuff while she herself was ill -- banks and such wouldn't even talk to me without a POA. She made sure that she got the POA for my spouse Mark (her eldest son) and me (only daughter-in-law) for her even before Dad was gone.
