Let’s face it: your financial assets don’t tell the story of your life. It’s fine if you can one day leave something to your heirs, but be sure to include your unique story to fill in the gaps for generations to come.
Like most people reading this, I have many photos of relatives who have long passed away that I cannot identify. Some are gorgeous photos of 30 people sitting at a Thanksgiving table with the proud head of the family standing over the main course with a carving knife in hand. He’s telling a story that I beg to know more about. Unfortunately, I recognize a few faces and a name or two written on the back of the photo. It is more or less that. I don’t know anything about the course of their life.
