Friday’s horrific event in Connecticut forced me to do two things. First, it made me realize I must value every moment with my family. Anything can happen to anyone of us regardless of age or health. Second, it forced me to talk candidly with friends and family about the importance of estate planning.
Ever since I started my practice in estate planning, I feel as though I have championed the cause. I tell everyone I meet how important it is to plan, as none of us will escape our inevitable passing. I realize, however, that I previously failed to impress upon the younger generation the importance of planning today, as we do not know what will come tomorrow. In my recent conversations with friends, family and acquaintances, I am focusing on the fact that age or health will not determine when the need for estate planning arises. None of us knows what the future holds, so we must plan today.
If I have learned nothing else from Friday’s events, I take away the knowledge that life is fleeting, and I must appreciate and value every moment I have.
