Should we get a co-executor for the estate?

My father and mother recently named me as executor of their modest estates. However, as I have no experience with this, they believe it may be helpful for me to have a co-executor, and my father has set up a meeting with a lawyer in Boston. (My parents live in Virginia, and I live in New York). Can anyone offer insight into what questions I should ask the prospective co-executor, or what the possible pros and cons are for having a "professional" co-executor?
