Wishes can come true
Planning ahead for the future is crucial
The ultimate form of communicating our wishes for the future is our will or trust. Throughout history, people have used wills to fulfill and sustain their wishes. When we fail to have a will, we miss a wonderful opportunity to share our wishes with our family, friends, church and the causes important to us.
Without a will, the state tries to determine what our wishes are and tries to act on them – often at a great expense to the estate. The state does not always get it right; those important to us may miss out on all we planned for them.
Take a moment to consider your legacy. Do not let the state decide what you would have done. A well-written plan reflects your intentions to your family, friends, church and favorite charities.
