There are other options if there is not a close family relative or friend that you wish to name.  There are services - so called "professional executors" such as a bank, a trust company, an attorney, an accountant, in some instances, even a financial planner. You can name a person who is employed by the firm, or just the organization itself if you wish.  Good luck.
