I am trying to set these up for my parents, using a form bought at a bookstore. But I want to include family friends of theirs, younger people, who are very trustworthy and live nearby. I hate to say this, but I don't altogether trust myself and sibling to handle things properly. We are odd, and I want stable, normal, people to weigh in, both in welfare and financial matters. My brother thinks this is horrible. He says in his experience, the estate is always stolen, and thinks that a friend would manage that. I believe that he does expect some inheritance after their deaths, while am too often depressed to even care. They are 91 and 94, one a carer for the other.
