I can’t overstate the peace of mind and enormous sense of relief that came with having my affairs in order…
Knowing that I will not become an undue burden on anyone…
… that nobody has to wonder what my final wishes are.
… that I am not leaving my survivors with work to do.
… that nobody need make any difficult decisions during an already stressful time.
… that nobody need act against their religious views.
… that all my advance medical care wishes are in place legally.
… that nobody has to hunt for important documents.
… that I’ve hired a fiduciary (a professional executor) to handle all my affairs.
… that the bulk of my estate will be donated to causes I care about.
… that everything has been clearly communicated (both verbally and in writing) to all impacted parties.
… and knowing that I am leaving nothing unsaid that needs to be said.
