Bleich, Joe C.jpg

This is not about a person but a hurricane. This named storm, after a bizarre, meandering path, looks as if it’s headed, for the moment, away from producing major damage. That is the reason for the cheer. We have already encountered, in just this hurricane season, two devastating hurricanes, severely hurting people and injuring property in Texas and Florida.

Question: My husband and I are retired. We live comfortably.
No one would consider us rich, but we have more than we ever dreamed and we want it to go to our children and grandchildren. I have typed up a will for each of us and we have both signed it in our own handwriting like we are supposed to.
Do we really need a lawyer if our affairs are pretty simple?
