The best and most appreciated gift that you can give your family may not be wealth or treasure, but the comfort and peace of mind that comes with knowing they have followed your wishes.
Estate Planning is not just about taxes and the transfer of property. It also encompasses making a contract with your helpers to follow when you are no longer able to speak for yourself. This not only includes your wishes for after you are gone, but planning for disability or incapacity, as well.
As you might imagine, it is of great comfort for your family and other helpers to know that they are doing what you wanted.
This peace of mind might be the greatest gift of all.
