Dr. Black’s widow has, by now, winnowed through mounds of requisite and resultant paperwork, discovering in a most grueling way the grim reality as per the adage: “every ‘T’ must be crossed; every ‘I’ dotted.”
For when someone dies, their ‘estate’ is allotted.
So as to avoid that dreadful nether realm of having the deceased’s assets fall into other hands, with a ‘Living Will one makes their plans while they still walk upon their lands.
Take the word ‘interstate’ and subtract the ‘r’, and there you are.
Surely the widow is finding out just what our society is made of.
