The Will In the Front Yard

Antonio and Ann Yzaguirre died when a tornado hit their Tennessee home several days before Christmas. Oddly, several pages of their will were found 55 miles away in the front yard of Sharon Thompson.  In looking for the owner of the will, she connected the will to the Yzagurirres through a Google search.  

Several quick points:

1.  It is best to not keep an original will where it can be destroyed in a natural disaster or fire (or thrown away accidentally with a poor screenplay).

2.  Of pieces of paper to find after a tornado, a will has to rank down there with credit card bills and junk mail.

3.  No word on whether the Yzaguirres lived in a mobile home.
