Download this complementary "From the Heart" Legacy Planning Journal.
This journal can be left to your heirs in the event of your passing. Inside, instructions are written to include directives on care of dependents, funeral and burial plans, and the distribution of personal effects. The location of important documents can be listed, in addition to categories for social security information, life and health insurance policies and more.
While a journal can and should never replace a proper will, a copy left for each beneficiary of your estate can compile information and help ease confusion and uncertainty after the stressful event of losing a loved one.
