I highly recommend Susan Turnbull’s The Wealth of Your Life. This updated, thorough guide takes an important, meaningful, and somewhat daunting task and breaks it down into doable, step-by-step actions that anyone can do in a timely fashion. Taking the time to capture and write what matters most to you is one of the greatest gifts you can give to your loved ones — at any age! Having lost my mother suddenly to a brain aneurism when she was 44, I continue to long for her and so wish she had written her Ethical Will for me and my brothers (and our children). While I’m grateful for her necklace around my neck, I feel the loss of the story behind it that none of us will ever know.
