Wills clarify what your final wishes are regarding your distribution of assets.  Without a will, your estate will go through probate court.  A judge, not you, will be put in a position to decide how your assets will be distributed among your loved ones.  A will lets your family know your final wishes and lifts the burden that they would have to face.
