Allentown, PA asked in Estate Planning for Pennsylvania

Q: Separate wills and separate benificiaries?

My husband and I have separate wills. In my will,I provide for my son if my husband does not survive me. In my husband’s will, he provides for his son if I do not survive him. If I should pass first, does everything go to his son after my husband passes and my son does not receive anything?
