Thanks, but I am a hermit and a will would require finding witnesses and 
that is a bother. I keep and maintain a list of all required accounts 
and such and my sister regularly gets a copy. She has been made joint on 
my bank accounts and has my passwords to other things. My affairs are 
real simple and the will is too much bother.
