Have you heard about the guy who made the comment, jokingly we can presume, "if I can't take it with me, I ain't going"?
Or the couple who was discussing the "passing" of an acquaintance and was musing about how much of an estate was left and one of them responded "all of it"!! So true.
We often resort to humor to help us talk about those issues we are uncomfortable thinking and talking about. And many of these subjects are really very important to us. Such is the case when each of us contemplates our own "legacy".
What is our legacy? Broadly speaking, those things which we hand down to future generations. As each of us lives our lives we contribute to our legacies in a number of ways. Many contribute to organizations or causes with their time, their talent and their resources, including money.
Many continue to add to their legacy through estate provisions.
As you consider YOUR legacy, the Greenfield Historical Society would like for you to seriously consider this organization for your support.
