    Plain meaning of terms is used to construe will

    Chong v. Chong (In re Estate of Chong), 111 Nev. 1404, 906 P.2d 710 (1995):

    Absent strong extrinsic evidence indicating a contrary meaning, the surest way for courts to carry out a testator's intent is to construe a will according to the plain meaning of terms used in the will." Estate of Meredith, 105 Nev. at 691, 782 P.2d at 1315 . . .

    "[A] court may not vary the terms of a will to conform to the court's views as to the true testamentary intent. The question before us is not what the testator actually intended or what [the testator] meant to write. Rather it is confined to a determination of the meaning of the words used by [the testator]." Id. (quoting Jones v. First Nat. Bank, 72 Nev. 121, 123, 296 P.2d 295, 296 (1956)).
