“[D]uring the Testator’s lifetime, no beneficiary has anything more than a bare expectancy and no person has suffered any injury or damage as a result of his tentative dispositions.” Van Dam v. Gay,699 S.E.2d 480, 482 (Va. 2010). This is so because “a testator may, during his lifetime, alter his will or other testamentary papers as he pleases and whenever he chooses” and a will has “no life or force” while the testator is alive. See Schilling v. Schilling, 695 S.E.2d 181, 183 (Va. 2010).
