We try to avoid that because it is better to have somebody in the family do it.

Don’t let a lack of obvious trustee be a barrier to getting something written down. Otherwise, it’s going to end up going through probate and costing a lot of money when you could have a good choice. Even if that choice isn’t perfect.
