Jim had been trying to create a will for a while.
In fact, in 2001, he drafted his own version but couldn’t find an affordable lawyer to help him make it official. 15-years later, Jim found himself 63 years old, unmarried, and without children. Even so, there were people in his life for whom he wanted to leave a better world. He often thought of his house in the Bayview and of his roommate and nephew that lived there. What would happen if he died? Would they be able to afford the rising rent in San Francisco? When Jim looks back now, he can still feel the weight of those questions. “The will loomed over my head for years! Everything in the city is so expensive, and I wanted to get it done before I couldn’t anymore.”
The will loomed over my head for years! I wanted to get it done before I couldn’t anymore.
It’s a huge relief, especially as my health issues intensify.
