What is a "holographic will"?

A "Holographic Will" is a will that is partially or fully handwritten. Not all states recognize holographic wills. However, South Dakota does recognize holographic wills.

Example: My grandma wrote a holographic will. She meant to have an attorney type it up, but never got around to it, but we were able to file her handwritten version with the court when she died.
