Third: After the death of my beloved wife Dency Sealschott I give, devise and bequeath said Real Estate to my heirs share and share alike including my grandchild Floyd Young.

Fourth: It is my will that my personal property be sold and the proceeds be used to pay my just debts, the balance, if any, to go to my wife to be used by her during her natural life, or as long as she remains my widow.
