The older I get the more familiar the names in the obituary get.
My husband is retired and I am getting close to the age where I too can retire. While this is something workers look forward to, as I approach this time I notice that more and more of our classmates and the friends that we grew up with are passing away. Sadly I recognize that not everyone gets to reap the rewards of a long working career and gets to finally enjoy time doing what they want without punching a time clock. Some people have the luxury of reaching that goal while others do not.
Worrying about whether I will be one of them is foolish.
Worrying is not something I want to fit into my already tight schedule so I have made a decision to get some professional help. There are real estate lawyers especially skilled to protect our interests. One thing I am planning on doing as soon as possible is taking the necessary steps to secure my home for my family. I initially signed the papers to purchase this home on June 30, 1994. We may laugh about the bumper sticker that brags "Spending my children's inheritance" while we actually cringe at the idea. Most of want to leave something behind.
We have shared many memories here.
My 17 1/2 year old grandson came home (after being born) to this house. It will soon be paid for and it would be a shame if anyone other than my children benefited from the sacrifices made to buy this home. I want to make sure that the home is not lost. There are real estate lawyers especially skilled in ways of protecting your property and your family’s interest. A knowledgeable property/family lawyer will know how to draw up the papers to make sure each of my children are included in their inheritance so once I talk to him I will be able to better focus on doing the things I love best, spending time with the kids, grand kids, and writing.
