Who Gets Grandma's Diamonds? Planning Now for What's Left Behind

Getting a will in order is important but it’s only one part of the estate planning process. Is there a piece of jewelry, a vase, or a picture that you’d like to be sure a friend or relative receives after you die? Then you should think about getting those wishes on paper and this program is for you. “Who Gets Grandma’s Diamonds?” will give you tips for organizing your cherished possessions, documenting your wishes for passing them along, and letting those you treasure know about your plans. The program will be led by Eleanor Adkins, a 20-year resident of Washington, D.C.
