Re: business contract

It's not quite clear what your question is but if you mean to terminate all responsibility to pay the heirs of the intellectual property provisioner at her death, then you could include a provision in your operating agreement with her to that effect and also suggest that she include a similar provison in her will which should make it doubly clear that these payments are to cease upon her death and that her heirs are to have no viable or valid claim to such payments continuing after the provider's death.
