I hope you are enjoying the summer months and time with family. Soon it will be time to think about sending the children back to school and this is always met with mixed emotions,
It seems that in the past few weeks, there have been more celebrity deaths than usual..or I am more aware of it because of the media coverage...? I was reading one of my newsletters and this was mentioned with a reminder I thought was important: "The Michael Jackson family saga also reminds us that no matter how old you are (or who you are,) there is no better time than the present to make sure that your family does not have the burden of trying to uncover your wishes in their time of grief. Take the time to put your advanced directives, wills and final wishes together. Sit with your adult family members to share your thoughts on these matters and let people know where the important documents are in case of emergencies. After all, the gift of preparation is the greatest gift you can give your family in their time of need".
