I lost my husband 4 weeks ago and have spent so much unnecessary time locating information for the various agencies. Had I used “A Guide to Affairs In Order” only a few weeks earlier I would have had everything I needed in once place and would have saved myself not only time but would have had peace of mind.~ Linda - Houston, Texas
When I got this workbook a couple of years ago, the first thing I did was update my Will and redo my Durable Power of Attorney. I then made copies to give to the people who love and care for me, so when I am called to my Maker, they will know my wishes.~ Michael - Elk Grove, California
No matter how much we plan on the “hereafter” it is always a shock to lose someone, and to think of our own demise is a daunting experience. Tucked away now in my file, along with our Trusts, is your book, “A Guide to Getting Affairs in Order.” I refer to it often and continue to supply each chapter with more information. I am relieved to know there will be few surprises when the time comes and our families will be prepared to “follow the instructions.”~ Mary Ann - Sedona, AZ
