Matthew Breimayer of Fortitude Wealth Planners is offering a terrific opportunity for all adults interested in organizing important information for their families in the event of death or incapacity. It is the Family Love Letter, and it is an important, lasting gift to your family. From www.familyloveletter.org:
"The incapacity or death of a family member is always a traumatic event. However, the emotional turmoil and family pain is often magnified by the resulting confusion over the plans, assets and desires of an incapacitated or deceased family member. The mental fogginess that accompanies the family's trauma is exaggerated by the inability to make basic decisions because of the lack of basic information.
The Family Love Letter has been designed to provide "information in a time of confusion" and to help minimize the types of inadvertent mistakes that often occur in times of turmoil. While many clients are reluctant to discuss the tragedy of their death or disability with family members, they have less concern about leaving written information behind."
There will be a second session offered on March 14th, if warranted by the presenters and partipants.
Registration is required by March 4th by phone, in person, or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Participants in the fall 2012 sessions commented about how helpful this workshop was and, even if they felt pretty savvy about these issues, there were some great tips given by the presenters as they went page-by-page through the provided materials, highlighting and answering questions as they arose. It is important to note that this is not a sales pitch, but rather very valuable information and a true gift to provide to your loved ones in the event that you cannot speak for yourself.
There is no charge for this class, but each class size is limited. Each participant will be provided with a booklet and materials. To reserve your place, please call the library at 231-263-5484.
