Serving As Executor: Duties and Responsibilities

American poet Edgar Guest wrote a verse called “The Executor.” His poem refers to two friends, one so fond of the other that he made the friend his executor. The poem describes the demands of the role, and ends with the tired executor friend saying:

“Now when I die I’ll never ask, A friend to carry such a task; I’ll spare him all such anguish sore, And leave a hired executor.”

What is an executor? How are they chosen? Is it as hard as the poem suggests?
