What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others. – Pericles
Writing this type of document takes effort, thought and time. A commitment to do so will be a gift of love that your loved ones will appreciate more than any material thing you could give them. This document does not have to be given to your family at the time of your death. Like a living will, it can be given during your lifetime. Like your legal estate planning documents, it may need to be updated after a period of time if you write it well before death. An ethical will can be viewed as a work in progress.
The purpose of an ethical will is to be an affirmation of love for those you leave behind and a positive legacy one for you. An ethical will written for the purpose of laying blame, placing guilt, or attempting to control someone’s life with a cold hand from the grave is not ethical. These motivations are contrary to the historical foundations out of which this practice originates and should be avoided. We guide you through an interview to help you give voice to your values, principles, and life lessons that you wish to transfer to your family and friends. We help you leave a true gift of love for your family and friends.
Shape your legacy with love.
Begin your ethical will journey today, leaving a heartfelt message for your loved ones.
