We have discussed our wishes but we haven't drawn up legal documents.

Several years ago, I got some software that allows you to draw up all sorts of legal documents and then all you have to do is have them notarized. Since we don't have kids to factor in, we figured that would be easiest for us. But when we started looking at the various documents, it bummed us out and we never followed through on that project. :(

What do you mean by "Five wishes"? I've never heard of that.

It's a little booklet that asks various questions about how you want to be dealt with/treated when you are unable to make decisions yourself.

It's not hard RoseAnn,
Yes they do need to be notarized though.
Hope you get it going & finish it up.
Nice to have you know :)
