I was asked to serve as executor for a member at the church

This answer was rated:

I was asked to serve as executor for a member at the church where I preach. This is in California. 11 years ago, the decedent and his wife left my church upset. They changed their will/trust, but did not get it notarized. Now, the decedents spouse is asking me for a letter of resignation. I have no interest in this matter, and I asked for direction for her attorney. She says it will cost money to have him send me a letter. I need to know what I need to say in this letter of resignation. Thank you.
Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.

In your notarized affidavit of resignation as executor, you simply state your name, that you are of sound mind and body and of the age of majority. You state you were named as executor of the will and trust of the name of the deceased and that because of personal reasons you are unable or unwilling to perform the duties of executor and/or trustee and thereby resign. You sign it in front of a notary, they notarize it and you send the original to her attorney.
