Good Intentions Do Not Protect
It will not help your family, to have your friends say, after you are gone, "He
meant well." Good Intentions, if not carried out, may pave the way for an uncom
fortable future for those you love.
You are providing for your family now; protect their future, also, by having
ybur lawyer record your intentions regarding the disposition of your estate and
the support of those who may be left behind. In other words, make your will. To
insure these Intentions being carried out, with impartiality, economy and strict ob
servance of your directions, name a Trust Company as your executor and trustee.
The combined judgment and experience of a Trust Company's specialists in
estate management prevent the costly errors of an individual's experiments.
