The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, sadly passed away on Thursday the 16th of August 2018.  She died at her home in Detroit after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.  She is survived by her four sons.

She sold more than 76 million records in a career spanning over 6 decades with her distinctive voice that influenced generations.  She was the first woman to be inducted into the the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  Aretha was also the most charted female artist in history with 20 number-one R&B singles.  In 2008, she was ranked by Rolling Stone as the No. 1 greatest singer of all time……

Estimates value her estate at around $80 million (£62 million) and as yet, no will has been found…..  That such a successful artist did not have an estate plan or will in place will come as a shock to many.  The failure to plan for the inevitable may result in a long, protracted, costly probate that will delay her loved ones inheriting.  Under Michigan state law, her estate will be divided equally among her children having divorced 2 husbands.  However the lack of a will leaves the door open for creditors and extended family to lay claim to the estate.

Her funeral was held on August 31st 2018, and as befitting an artist of her stature and talent, a public viewing of her casket was permitted for the preceding 3 days.  “Aretha’s singing challenged the dangling discords of hate and lies and racism and injustice,” the pastor at the service said. “Her singing was revelation and was revolution.”

Respect your loved ones, think, stop day dreaming and do right – plan your legacy today.  Contact Wills Worldwide now to draft your will.

"It was a pleasure to work with Cindy and her team! Even though planning for one’s own death is a project we all can easily put off, it removed an area of stress in my life. I no longer had to wonder if certain people would be taken care of, or where my money would go. Cindy and I worked through the process and she asked a lot of thought provoking questions. The first draft helped me think a second layer down, and made the will more complete. We finalised with her lawyer, signed, witnessed and put away in a safe place, letting my executor know exactly where to find it. I do not hesitate to recommend Cindy’s services."

"Cindy made the process of making a Will painless and efficient which we really appreciated. She was sensitive to avoid putting pressure or hassle to complete the Will quickly which allowed us to consider everything in our own time. Best of all, Cindy's professional support and thorough and clear explanation of the laws pertaining to our situation were very helpful. We would look forward to working with Cindy again on documents personal to our family."
