I have lived legacy my entire adult life. I just did not realize it at the time. My adult life has been shaped by the loss of my mother and then my husband both at pivotal times in my life. I want to give you what I never had…the chance to connect with your loved ones.
My mother, also my best friend, was dying of cancer when my first child, her first granddaughter, was born. Mom was able to visit with her grandchild for a month before her death. Hours before she passed, she called together her loved ones to have a “Give-a-way Day.” This day impacted me and I desire to tell my stories and tell those around me how important they are.
Then, my husband died suddenly from a heart attack at only 48 years old. One minute we were doing chores together and the next he was gone. Two of our daughters were married and out of the house but our son was still at home. In that moment, everything changed. My husband and I had never discussed what to do “in the event”. We were both still young enough to deal with those plans later. Later never came.
I have been a financial educator and investor for over 30 years. It was my joy to help clients get their financial affairs in order, set and stick to a budget and learn ways to create legacy gifts. But, I realized I want to give my clients more than just financial stability. I wanted to help them leave a legacy.
Creation of Love Legacy
Out of these experiences came Love Legacy and my books Love Legacy Ledger and Love Legacy Letter. My heart wants to give you what I was never able to have … time to connect with your loved ones in meaningful, immediate and enduring ways.
