13,146. Half a million pounds. (Catholicism & Wills & Priest) Father Ted: Grant Unto Him Eternal Rest s1e6, Ted reads Jack’s will
93,291. My will is easy to decide,
For there is nothing to divide.
My kin don't need to fuss and moan –
'Moss does not cling to a rolling stone.'
My body? – Oh! – If I could choose,
I would to ashes it reduce,
And let the merry breezes blow
My dust to where some flowers grow.
Perhaps some fading flower then
Would come to life and bloom again.
This is my last and final will.
Good luck to all of you. Joe Hill

93,297. Of all the cases which come before the Court for its decision, none can be more embarrassing and more unsatisfactory than those which arise upon the construction of wills. The Court has no real guide to enable it to arrive at a conclusion. The only things which can be called guides are certain rules which the Court has laid down, and which may be extracted from the decisions. Beyond that, the decisions are not of the slightest use. Except by adherence to those rules, there is nothing but what may, not irreverently, be called guessing as to what the words of the document can be held to mean. James Bacon VC, re Ingle's Trusts 1871 LR 1 Eq Ca 586
93,298. I regret exceedingly that, not only ordinary laymen, but, as it seems to me, professional men, do not understand the great difficulty there is in drawing wills, and do not bestow a little more care and pains in endeavouring to draw them in such a way as that the numerous questions which often arise on them should be avoided. I regret to say that these questions often throw a great deal of expense on parties interested under the wills, and are the cause of great heartburnings and most bitter animosities. Pearson J, re Wait; Workman v Petgrave 1885 LR 30 C D 622
