  • A Living Will is a legal document in which you state your wishes about certain kinds of medical treatments and life-prolonging procedures.

    I have experienced first hand what can happen to a family when a person's wishes are not spelled out specifically if something bad happens to them. Trust me when I tell you that you want to do everything possible to keep the government out of your life. The fiasco in Florida has reminded us all that we need to have our intentions known A living will is a way to do this. I looked on Wikipedia and Clark Howard's web site and gathered together what I consider to be helpful information concerning Living Wills. Of course, you still should consult an attorney to make sure that everything is in place. I can't make any endorsements about the information I have placed here. I am only trying to provide a resource for Living Will samples and downloads of Living Will forms.
