Thought of the Day 400

It is said that time heals all wounds.  However, in the world of estate planning this is not always the case.  Divisions and disagreements between family members (usually between parents and children) can last a lifetime, and can even into the next generation.  Because the destructive nature of this energy is often perpetuated through estate planning, it follows that estate planning can also be used for the opposite effect - as a device or tool to begin the healing and forgiving process.  This takes courage, imagination, custom design, and counseling.  This Thanksgiving, know you can do it if you choose to.
