Judge(s): ARMSTRONG

This is a will contest. Appellants, Bill Morris, Jr., and Cheryl Morris, appeal the trial court?s determination that their Father?s will was properly executed pursuant to the requirements of Tennessee Code Annotated Section 32-1-104. We conclude that the witnesses to the will only signed the affidavit of attesting witnesses and not the will itself. Accordingly, we reverse and remand.
