Estate planning is often a hot-button issue for many in Warrenton. Perhaps it is the reality of dealing with one's own mortality that prompts many to put off the process. There also may be more practical concerns as to why so many have yet to draft a will (indeed, information shared by the American Association of Retired Persons shows that only four in 10 American adults have a will).
