Several of you know that my sweet mother passed away earlier this month after living a beautiful life for almost 92 years. In spite of the overwhelming grief, there are so many joyful and thankful moments we as family celebrate. I am extremely grateful for my mother’s thoughtful and kind gesture that she did several years ago as she made plans for her death and what was to come after. She had done the majority of estate planning in advance giving my brother and I a gift of a smooth transition when it came to dealing with the culmination of her personal assets and belongings.
Coincidently, a workshop dealing with this tough topic has been in the planning stages for several months.
FUMCFW in collaboration with the First Methodist Church of Fort Worth Foundation will present a one-hour workshop on Estate Planning and Probate on March 6th at 11:00. This is a topic that many of us don’t want to think or talk about and yet it is important when it comes to peace of mind.
Every adult needs a will or trust in place regardless of the stage of life, yet 60% of Americans do not have a plan in place. (aarp.com)
This workshop will be useful to:
• Individuals, single or married, who want to know what documents need to be in place in the event of a tragedy or emergency;
• adult children who need to have that hard conversation with aging parents; or
• senior adults who want to bring peace of mind to family and loved ones on a difficult topic.
Terri Helge, TAMU Professor of Law and Associate Dean of Academic Affairs, will share her expertise as to what one needs to have in place to ensure that when the inevitable happens, the individual’s wishes will be known to family and loved ones through the appropriate documents.
The workshop will take place in room 350. Registration is required. Please join us!
Together thru Christ,
