Why do we hate to talk about dying? It’s the one thing in this life you can’t avoid. I’ll be the first to admit, it’s one of my biggest fears! I actually hesitated writing this out of fear of talking about it, making it real. Death used to be associated with old age, but in this day and age, preparation needs to begin at the start of life and not the end. How many can honestly say that they have a plan? A life insurance policy? A burial policy? An advance directive? A place for your children to go in the event something happens to you? We take extra measures when preparing for the arrival of a new life but none for death.

When a child is born, we prepare for their birth. We make sure we set up medical insurance, dental, and even bank accounts.

We live as if we’ll never die. The cost of an average funeral and burial is $8,000-$10,000. If you or a loved one died today could you cover that? If we can spend money on designer shoes and bags, lavish vacations and pampering, we can spend money on life insurance and burial policies.

Can someone tell me why don’t we get a living trust? First, what is a living trust? A living trust is a legal document created by you during your lifetime that allows an easy transfer of assets without the expensive fees associated with a probate. These aren’t for a specific economic class. Now I’m no expert, but I’ve seen the result of sudden death and no plans.

The family is always left to figure it out. Searching through the home for paperwork that may or may not exist. The family you thought were close soon become enemies over a few dollars, jewelry, and some property.

Start the conversations today. Don’t allow fear to prevent you from making preparations. Your family will thank you.

Until next time…❤️
