I, name, residing at address, declare this to be my Will, and I revoke any and all wills and codicils I previously made.

Article I: Funeral expenses & payment of debts

I direct my executors to pay my enforceable unsecured debts and funeral expenses, the expenses of my last illness, and the expenses of administering my estate.

Article II: Money & Personal Property

I give all my tangible personal property and all policies and proceeds of insurance covering such property, to name. If he/she does not survive me, I give that property to name. My executors may pay out of my estate the expenses of delivering tangible personal property to beneficiaries.

Article III: Real Estate

I give all my residences, subject to any mortgages or encumbrances thereon, and all policies and proceeds of insurance covering such property, to name. If he/she does not survive me, I give that property to name.

Article IV: Residuary Clause

I give the rest of my estate (called my residuary estate) to name. If he/she does not survive me, I give my residuary estate to name.

Article V: Taxes

I direct my executors, without apportionment against any beneficiary or other person, to pay all estate, inheritance and succession taxes (including any interest and penalties thereon) payable by reason of my death.

Article VI: Minors

If under this will any property shall be payable outright to a person who is a minor, my executors may, without court approval, pay all or part of such property to a parent or guardian of that minor, to a custodian under the Uniform Transfers to Minors act, or may defer payment of such property until the minor reaches the age of majority, as defined by his or her state of residence. No bond shall be required for such payments.

Article VII: Fiduciaries

I appoint name, as Executor of this will. If he/she is unable or unwilling to act, or resigns, I appoint name(s), as successor (co-)executor(s). If either co-executor also predeceases me or is unable or unwilling to act, the survivor shall serve as executor. My executor shall have all the powers allowable to executors under the laws of this state. I direct that no bond or security of any kind shall be required of any
executor.

Article VIII: Simultaneous Death Clause

If my spouse and I shall die under such circumstances that the order of our deaths cannot be readily ascertained, my spouse shall be deemed to have predeceased me. No person, other than my spouse, shall be deemed to have survived me if such person dies within 30 days after my death. This article modifies all provisions of this will accordingly.

Article IX: Guardian

If my husband does not survive me and I leave minor children surviving me, I appoint as guardian of the person and property of my minor children name. He/she shall have custody of my minor children, and shall serve without bond. If he does not qualify or for any reason ceases to serve as guardian, I appoint as successor guardian name.
