Her father or Nick Gordon, her alleged husband?  An advance health care directive would have made this situation a lot easier.  Bobby Brown, Bobbi Kristina's father, is keeping a vigil beside his daughter as she struggles for her life.

A will is one of the only documents that is enforceable after you die and it dictates how your assets will be distributed upon your death. It can also save your estate in taxes after you pass.  Proper estate planning is crucial.
