I See Red

Published in: Click to show all news |

While red has traditionally been associated with danger in the Western world, for the month of February 2018, it means two major celebrations. First up is Valentine's Day on the 14th. The best known origin of this day is based on Valentine, a Roman priest who lived during the third century. When emperor Claudius II outlawed marriage because he felt that single men made better soldiers than married ones, Valentine defied the emperor's decree and continued to perform marriages in secret. When he was found out, Valentine was put to death and his name is celebrated for love and romance to this day.

Let's face it ... we all have "stuff". That "stuff" can range from real estate, to bank accounts, to stocks and bonds, to pensions, to jewelry, to clothes, to artwork and so on. Moreover, when we pass, we all want our "stuff" to go to whom we want it to go to ... not to someone chosen by the State. There are several ways to convey your "stuff" to those you want to get it. There is no "best way for all" to accomplish that goal. But some ways may be better than others. For example, putting your cash under your pillow with a note saying, "This goes to X" is probably not the best way to get your cash to X. Rather the better solution is to execute one of the many testamentary documents, all of which tell others to whom you want your "stuff" to go to and who you want to do it. Then your goals are accomplished. This article will concern about some of the testamentary methods available to you.
