I, Lyman Aubrey Drewry, being a resident of the County of Botetourt, in the State of Virginia, and being of sound and disposing mind, do make this my last will and testament, hereby revoking all former testamentary papers by me at any time heretofore made.
Item I: I direct that my executrix, hereinafter named, to pay as a cost of the administration of my estate all of my just debts, expenses and last illness and funeral expenses and all estate and inheritance taxes upon or with respect to any property which is required to be included in my gross estate for such tax purposes. I direct that my executrix shall not require that any part of such taxes be recovered from, paid by, or apportioned among the recipients of or those interested in such property.
Item II: I give and bequeath to my son, Lyman Aubrey Drewry, Jr., in fee simple, my high-top secretary.
Item III: I give and bequeath to my son, J. Thomas Drewry, in fee simple, any tractor, yard cart, lawn and/or farm mowers, splitter, disk and any other miscellaneous farm equipment or appurtenances which I may own at the time of my death.
Item IV: I give and bequeath to my son, Victor R. Drewry, in fee simple, my truck and cattle trailer, or any truck or farm vehicle which I may own at the time of my death.
Item V: All the rest, residue and remainder of my property, real and personal, tangible and intangible, wheresoever situate and howsoever held, and all fire and casualty insurances policies thereon, herein referred to as my residuary estate, I give, devise and bequeath, in fee simple, to my wife, Pearl Myers Drewry, if she survives me.
Item VI: Should my said wife, Pearl Myers Drewry, fail to survive me, I give, devise and bequeath my residuary estate, in fee simple, in six equal shares, to my three sons and my three daughters, namely, Lyman Aubrey Drewry, Jr., J. Thomas Drewry, Victor R. Drewry, Brenda Lou Steele, Linda Sue Lundy, and Deborah Hughes Craig.
If any share of my estate shall become distributable to a minor, my executrix may, in her absolute discretion, pay over such shares at any time to the guardian of the property or person of such minor, or retain the same for such minor during minority. In case of such retention, my executrix may apply such principal and the income therefrom to the support, maintenance and education of such minor, either directly or by payments to the guardian of the property or person of such minor or the person with whom such minor may reside, in any case without requiring bond, and the receipt of any such person shall be a complete discharge to my executrix, who shall not be bound to see to the application of any such payments. Any unapplied principal and income shall be paid over to such legatee upon his or her attaining majority, or if he or she shall die before attaining majority, to his or her estate. In holding any funds for any minor, my executrix may have all the powers and discretions hereinafter conferred upon her.
I nominate and appoint my wife, Pearl Myers Drewry, as executrix of this my last will and testament, if she survives me; but if she predecease me or shall decline to act, or for any cause whatever shall cease or fail to act, then I appoint my daughter, Deborah Hughes Craig, as executrix of my estate; and I request that no security be required on the bond of either and that an appraisal of my estate be waived.
In administering my estate, my executrix is hereby granted all of the powers of fiduciaries as set forth in Section 64.1-57 of the 1950 Code of Virginia, as amended, and all of said powers, as enumerated therein, are hereby incorporated and made a part of this instrument, it being my intention to confer upon my executrix the broadest and amplest powers, the foregoing powers being by way of illustration and not by way of limitation.
In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and seal to this my last will and testament, in the County of Botetourt, State of Virginia, the Second day of March, 1983.
