May 18 Virtual Meeting-Living Legacy (aka Ethical Will) Why and How to Create Yours
April 24, 2020Mary Greenlee, Maureen Severns, and Sharon Seiling presented a wonderful program on Monday, May 18.
They explained that the Living Legacy (Ethical Will) is an ancient document from the Judeo-Christian tradition. Discussion included how this traditional document has continued and changed over centuries. Today the ethical will has been described as “a gift of spiritual health left to the family.” It has also been described as “gifts to the family that have no financial value.” The purpose is to pass on wisdom and love to future generations.
There are many forms that the Living Legacy can take. There is no right or wrong way. The presentation included the rationale for creation of a Living Legacy. Various models and examples were presented by Mary, Maureen, and Sharon.
