Overview

A large majority of American don't have the basic legal documents for an adequate estate plan. Most have no idea what documents are needed or how they work. Many seniors worry about the friction and family discord that will take place when they pass away. They have heard the horror stories of how children and other relatives have gone to war after a friend died. Though it may be their biggest fear they have no idea how to keep it from happening.

In a recent study both Baby Boomers and seniors listed "passing values and life lessons" to future generations as their top priority in estate planning. But how could they possibly accomplish such a goal? If it was possible to pass those memories and lessons forward how valuable would they be to future generations?

Remember your loved one that helped form you into the person you are today. If that person has passed away, what would it be worth to have one more hour with him or her? What questions would you want to ask? What stories would you want them to tell? What lessons could you learn? It isn't possible to bring a loved one back from the grave, but what about those you still have with you? After they are gone will your heart still yarn to hear their voices? Are there memory and stories they have shared you would like to hear again? What lessons could your children learn from them? What if it were possible to preserve those priceless memories and lessons for generations to come, even after they are gone?
