I told my children that I want to leave messages for them and they indicated displeasure with the idea. What should I do?

It is not easy for our relatives to think of our (and their) future death and to process the concept of the emotional will.

We recommend that you explain the meaning of the emotional will to your children, the importance of leaving significant messages after your departure, telling them how much you love and care for them.

The emotional will is your way of parting from them when the time comes, with an expression of your love, gratitude and concern.

It is best that family members understand the meaning of your will and its significance to you, but this process may take time. You do not need your heirs’ consent to leave messages and we are confident that, when the time comes, it will be a gift from you and a special tradition to follow.
