The 25 Documents You Need in Order, Right Now


The Wall Street Journal posted an article called “The 25 Documents You Need Before You Die” which is great, but the “before you die” part tempts one to procrastinate.  Since we don’t know when we’ll die, I’d say we all need these right now.

I emphasize Advance Directives (Living Will)  on this list, to let your family and any medical staff know your wishes should you be facing death and not able to express your wishes regarding life support, etc.  This is incredibly important.  I mean, Terry Schiavo, you know?
