Do I have to follow the directions provided in a Will as Executor?

Executors are required to carry out the provisions of a Will to the extent they are legal.  However, beneficiaries can disclaim property given to them in the Will and make other agreements.  In Mississippi, you are not generally required to probate a Will.  If a Will is not prorated the assets fall under intestate succession law.
