Although The Best of Our Lives is wonderfully written and arranged, and presents invaluable advice for so many areas of our lives, there are little jewels of wisdom that sparkle. There is a chapter that deals with the maintenance of a personal file that would contain financial information, including that necessary for our loved ones to manage our estates after our death. I believe this to be one of the most important steps to take, especially as we age. As a CPA, I have counseled numerous widows and widowers, or children or other loved ones of a decedent, who are beside themselves to manage an estate which has insufficient information to determine the assets, liabilities and other important information necessary to manage and close an estate. You must, at a minimum, read this chapter.
