Highlight

A holographic will is valid if the signature and material portions of the document are in the testator’s handwriting.

Material portions of a holographic will express donative and testamentary intent.

A district court’s finding that the material portions of a holographic will were not in the testator’s handwriting is supported by the record and affirmed.
