It's one thing we don't want to talk about...
The thing we fear most in this life - right up there with public speaking.
Death. And what to do with our estate once we're gone from this world.
We've heard some of the stories from well-known musicians who have passed away: Michael Jackson, Prince, and now Aretha Franklin.
Although an unpleasant topic, a bit of planning would have spared their families years of litigation, millions in lawyer fees and agonizing dispute between family members.
Well, we may not achieve the stature of a Michael Jackson or Aretha Franklin (but who says we can't?) but we owe it to ourselves and our loved ones to plan for when we're no longer on the earth.
