Last Wills Surface 100 Years Late!
AaWillKar: Hi! So, good to see you! It always makes my day to see people interested in making Last Wills. Oh, for those of you who don’t know me, I’m Suresh AaWillKar. I’ve been dead for over a year now. But I’m happy because I made my Last Will. On my last visit to Earth (don’t ask me how I convinced God to send me as an observer!) I saw my family living together peacefully.
NaaWillKar:Fine! I didn’t make a Last Will! Don’t humiliate me more; my family is anyways fighting over my name.
AaWillKar:I’m not humiliating you. I’m just telling them what a fool you were. Even soldiers fighting in the 1st World War knew the importance of writing a Last Will! You didn’t know? Oh good, I love talking! So listen,
For 100 years the British Government had been sitting on millions of Last Wills and letters of World War 1 soldiers, who died in the war. Their reason?
They considered these wills and letters, to be official records belonging to the War office! So much for the pain those soldiers must have taken to write their Last Wills. It never reached those for whom it was intended.
Finally, in September, 2013, digital copies of roughly 280,000 wills and letters were put up on the World Wide Web for those interested in seeing it. But now these wills are no more than sad reminders of souls long gone or artefacts for the World War Museum.
At least your loved ones won’t have to deal with a similar sadness after you go.
Make the right choices before you begin your journey to the other world.
NaaWillKar:I wish I had.
