Ethical Wills

An Ethical Will reflects the "voice of the heart." Think of it as a love letter to your family. Every ethical will is as unique as the person writing it. They can mean more than any material possession you might bequest in your legal will. A living will is also important; it ensures that relatives and doctors understand your medical treatment choices and preferences.
There are common themes that run through many of them. Older ethical wills contained burial instructions, blessings and personal and spiritual values.
