Re: Your legacy? Wills and such

Tina, I'm very sorry your best friend passed away.

I keep meaning to take care of all this — a couple of years ago I got a booklet with a form to follow to get me started, but I haven't gotten to it yet. My (younger) brother just went through a health crisis in the last week and a half, and fortunately survived. It's his children that I would be leaving everything to... and a reminder that it's necessary to get this taken care of.

With thanks for the reminders here, and wishing you all much good luck in getting your papers worked out,

Re: Your legacy? Wills and such

@timelady; Thanks for the clarification. I've just checked my copy of the will, and I've left everything to my partner so he gets IP rights then. Which is how I now want it, and that will do for me. And a couple I know will get everything, including IP, if he dies before me, or within 28 of my death. So it's all sorted out.

Re: Your legacy? Wills and such

This is interesting as my paintings are more valued by my friends than family!I should start thinking about who inherits my art now

Re: Your legacy? Wills and such

My advice:
1) Don’t wait! I nearly died at the age of 56 from a sudden brain aneurysm rupture - no advance warning, I was in perfect health.
2) Your relatives are not necessarily the best recipients. Unless they will clearly want or use your property, it would be better to find a person who would really appreciate it.
3) Consider that you might be adding a burden in certain cases. Cost of storage for sure, but also the hassle of dealing with IP.

Re: Your legacy? Wills and such

I have an old will, out of date. The church I was going to leave my art to, has closed (after 170 years). One of my nieces is ill, the other is disabled, my nephew is not very healthy. It is all a puzzle. I hope I live many more years so I can figure it all out.

You can always see if the Smithsonian wants it.
