Why was Marie writing a will?

And my poor little girls; what will become of them? And how can I leave Michel Philippe with all my children? A man of fifty cannot care for a family alone, and what is to come of them after I am gone?

I thank God I have one daughter who is with a good husband. I must use the wealth God has given me to protect my children. With His help I will make the right choice. There is little time... I pray for guidance. I pray for your help, oh Blessed Virgin!
