Dear Sir / Madam,

The Testator is the maker of the Will. The Executor is the person who is supposed to execute the Will after the demise of the Testator. Ideally, the Will should be in the safe custody of the Executor.

Testator is person who makes Will. Executor is person who executes the Will.

Will need not be in a sealed envelope. Law does not prescribe for a sealed envelope. Will will be a valid one.
