        My two adult children, most definitely. My will is already set. 50% each. Don't have enough to bequeath anything special to anyone else.

          If I won a jackpot, my will would be set for my mom, three sisters, nieces and nephews and a few certain charities that I like.

            Depends on the size of the jackpot.  My sisters, nieces and their children would be on my list if there was enough to go around.  But I'd also like to leave money to a couple of charities.

            By the way, we're all dying.

              I with you on size.

              My wife of course first, (by law she would be entitled to it anyway) then parents so they could at least enjoy life after retirement, a few close friends and relatives...(small percentage to charity and church)

                I'm already dead! Scared

                 

                Anyway, I'd have to consider where it'd go but at this point it all wouldn't go to just one person. Plus I'd have to have some left for me so I could be cryogenically frozen. <_< >_> I might just set something up so I can hang on to it until I get thawed out in a couple hundred years.Stooges

                    Well, from what I understand they only freeze you from the neck up.  So if you die and decide to use cryogenics you might be right.  When you wake up in 100 years you will definitely be a head.

                        If I calculated that the amount of my total estate left after income and estate taxes would be 25 million or more, I'd leave about:

                        16 million to a total of 18 relatives (stepchildren, step-grandchildren, siblings, neices, nephews, in varying amounts)

                        2 million to my special friend

                        any amounts over 18 million to various charities

                         

                        If the total was less than 25 million, I'd still leave a little to charity, but not as high a percentage.

                              I will leave everything to my bestfriend (my wife).

                               

                              PS: Yesterday, my doc told us that my cancer returned (2nd recurrence) and I will be put on chemotherapy for the rest of my (short) life.
