Can you please tell me if the sentence in quotation marks is the topic sentence? I read paragraph one and paragraph three, I believe that paragraph one was a very effective paragraph. "It touches a few very interesting points about why someone should create a Living Will". It explains in detail that everyone needs a Will and why. This is especially important to me because of the way that my family has handled our loved ones personal things after they have passed away. I personally think that the writer could have smoothed their sentences out more this particular paragraph is a bit choppy and all over the place.

    As I explained in my previous posts for you, that sentence is NOT the topic sentence.

    Ms. Sue...this paragraph is not the same, it's a little bit different.

    I know. But my remarks in the previous posts are still true of this paragraph.

    A topic sentence tells the reader what the paragraph is about. You provided no support for the first sentence. You didn't show us the interesting points.

    Also -- please read the paragraph about living wills.
