In keeping personal information secure, you might want to read the reviews of our end of life planner and documentation guide. These are real reviews from real people who took the time to write to me and tell me how useful it was for them to document their final wishes and secure their personal information. Because this is a difficult issue to discuss, just having an end of life planning guide around is most helpful. As you will note, it gives you peace of mind to know that keeping personal information secure in a book is in your possession.
Keeping Personal Information Secure
As a senior woman, I’ve lived a life as a person interested in solutions by always planning for future life issues, be it keeping kids healthy, a husband happy, or bills paid on time. I also have ideas for how to ‘exit stage left’: This requires planning early. This workbook is just what each of us can use to do our plan for the inevitable. —Scharlene
End of Life Planner
This is a remarkably helpful book to assist people in making their transitions. Many, many people pass on without telling their children where things are. Billions of dollars are lost every year, often by families who can’t afford this type of loss. This concise, easy-to-use booklet covers everything a person needs in order to pass on everything he or she desires to leave to children, partners, and others. Every probate attorney, every CPA, should have a stack of these sitting on the desk to hand out to clients. This book is just something every family should have. Can’t recommend it highly enough. —Stuart
Thank you so much for putting something like this together. I’ve always directed my children to the dreaded drawer where all of the information is. None of them want to look there. Now it will all be in a book. I’m buying them all one, too. —Sue
As a fellow nurse, I work in hospice care and see daily how quickly death can create chaos for the living.—Ruth
Even though I have a living trust…this would be a wonderful ‘plain English’ supplement to it.
I lost my 42 year-old son…and the things I went through will forever be in my mind. No will…lots of debt…thank you for writing this book, which I am hoping the public will respond to and realize how difficult it is to get through the death of a loved one. —Charli
End of Life Workbook
I lost a cousin I was very close to. He died unexpectedly of anaphylactic shock because of a reaction to medication he was taking. His wife called 911 and by the time the emergency folks arrived, he was dead. His throat closed and he couldn’t breathe. It was a tragedy. I think his wife knew where to find everything, but she was so distraught that she could hardly function for a while. So many cases—all different—but needing the same kind of information. —Jill
We lost a very dear friend very unexpectedly at the age of 54. He was jogging and suffered a heart attack. To make this so sad, he had just lost his wife to cancer. They leave behind two adult children. He had the foresight to have his affairs in order, but there are so many other questions that remain. A friend showed me your book today, what a valuable book. Thank you so much. —D.M.
I will order another copy of this for my husband…..it covers all the bases with regard to last wishes and where things of importance are stored. —P.L.
Putting Affairs in Order
My partner of 18 years suffered a near-fatal pulmonary embolism. I personally drove Mike to the emergency room…I knew nothing for the next 14 hours. A nurse finally called telling me he had survived the night. Like flipping on a switch…we had to arrange everything in our lives and our CPA business. We had received a copy of Terry Ann Black’s book a year before and recognized its value in presenting it to our clients. I’d also sent copies to my 83-year old mother and 85-year old godmother. That little book helped me come to, get objective and actually proceed through the minutes and hours of what was the most miserable of sinking feelings. I suggest that Nurse Terry’s booklet should become an indispensible tool of estate and trust planners. I can see where banks, financial houses, wow, even mortuaries should make this little tool available to all.
