§41-1-3. Must be in writing; witnesses.
No will shall be valid unless it be in writing and signed by
the testator, or by some other person in his presence and by his
direction, in such manner as to make it manifest that the name is
intended as a signature; and moreover, unless it be wholly in the
handwriting of the testator, the signature shall be made or the
will acknowledged by him in the presence of at least two
competent witnesses, present at the same time; and such witnesses
shall subscribe the will in the presence of the testator, and of
each other, but no form of attestation shall be necessary.
