When I talk to people who don't have wills and I ask them why they haven't made one yet, I get a variety of answers. The one I hear the most is that people plan to make wills "later", when they are older, or sick, or injured. They believe that they will have the opportunity to make one when their need is greater. Guess what? You don't always get the chance. The article below talks about how fortunate it was that the victim of a car crash had made a will even though he didn't anticipate needing one for a long time.
