Thanksgiving is just around the corner and what better time than now to take stock of your assets and think about the ones you love? Thanksgiving is a time to focus on friends and family and to stop and appreciate the relationships we have in our lives. It can also be a time to take stock of the things you have in your life and think about how you want to honor the people closest to you.
When you create an estate plan, you take an inventory of everything you have: perhaps a home, furnishings, jewelry, collections, vehicles, or stocks and business interests and you designate who will receive them when you are gone.
Every gift, whether a painting, stocks, a plant, or a ruby-studded pin will be greatly appreciated by your loved ones if you take the time to think about what those closest to you value. All our loved ones have special memories of our relationships just as we do and taking the time to choose the things our beneficiaries will inherit can be a very uplifting and fulfilling experience.
