“DO YOUR GIVIN’ WHILE YOU’RE LIVIN’ …”
“THEN YOU’LL BE KNOWIN’, WHERE IT’S GOIN’.”

It is an unfortunate reality that people are often stricken by illness, or death, when they least expect it. That is why we encourage clients to sort through their belongings while they are still healthy. . It may seem premature, but planning ahead has the benefit of peace of mind – knowing that your most treasured items will be left to those who you want to have them. The added benefit is that it might prevent family squabbles in the future.
You don’t necessarily have to give it all away now. You should enjoy your treasures as long as you can. Just follow in my grandmother’s footsteps and tag what is going to whom.
And I’m betting that in the process you also find many items that you no longer use or need, and have no sentimental value. You could donate these items to a worthy charity now. In these tough economic times whatever we can do for the needy is sincerely appreciated.
If you need help with the process, just give us a call.
