If you are doing estate planning, conveying end of life information, writing a last will and testament, gathering obituary information, or even planning your funeral; planning long term care, preparing your executor, providing advance directives, living wills, or creating a healthcare power of attorney, or writing your own ethical will; if you have thought enough to pre-plan, there is only one thing left to do…
GIVE YOUR FAMILY THE GREATEST GIFT OF ALL:
Remove all the guessing about “what you would have wanted” …
Even if you have done all of your legal planning and have all your documents complete, in the hours after your death your loved ones still need to know…
WHERE TO FIND IT!
Friday August 05, 2005
If you’d like to leave your family with peace of mind that:
then, this is a very important letter. Please read it carefully!
From harsh personal experience and tons of research, I have developed a system for detailing your every intention so your family will know exactly what you want to happen after you have died. It gives you a place to clearly record every tiny detail of your estate, the location of documents, your preferences for your funeral and even who should be informed.
More important than being a place to record your wishes, it asks dozens of questions few people think to ask!! Everything from Where is the will? to Who gets the cat? Just the fact that you would think to write everything down in such an organized way will be, in itself, a tribute to your life. It will give great peace to your loved ones — and, maybe, keep the peace among them, too!
Now, I know you probably have never thought much about many of these things. Most people haven’t either. It is very common. That is why I created
Three Examples (from my own family) of Why This is Important:
Example One: My father died after a six-year battle with Lou Gherig’s disease. During those years we all knew how it would end. Given that knowledge, Dad created a little notebook that let my mother know everything she would need to know when he was not around to ask. It gave my mother (and me!) great confidence in executing his wishes and maintaining his financial plan. It was this little notebook I used as the starting point for the system that is now available to your family, too.
Example Two: By contrast, my mother-in-law sat down on her couch one day and took a nap from which she did not awaken. Not only had she not written anything down, her will – if it was, in fact, her most recent one – was written 25 years ago. All named executors had been dead over ten years. To make things even more challenging, she had all sorts of unrecorded loans to one of her adult children (not my wife!). Deals which rendered the estate bankrupt. The resulting havoc and finger-pointing thoroughly, and probably permanently, destroyed her family within hours of the funeral.
Example Three: My uncle is 85; my aunt is 72. Their grandmother (my great-grandmother) owned an antique silver plate. Both my aunt and uncle seem to have some real or imagined claim over it. And, it has been a bone of family contention for over 40 years! Not a real fight, just an undercurrent that will not go away. Perhaps a similar tension has occurred in your own family.
It is examples such as these and dozens of others that I uncovered during my extensive research into the subject that led me to create a system for conveying exactly what you want to have happen at the end of your life. By the end of this letter, you will have a thorough understanding of things, some of which, you probably never considered. Let me tell you why it is important.
Here is a Summary of the Benefits
Now, you’re probably wondering how and why we go into such exhaustive detail in this system…
Let me explain:
You will find lots of checklists offered by funeral homes and advance planning services. You can even find some free on the Internet. But, they all fall short when it comes to providing the critical information for your family at their time of greatest need. I have gone to great lengths to assure that this is the most comprehensive system available anywhere!
Here to Hereafter is a highly flexible document system that will organize answers to almost every question a family will have about the intentions and legal affairs of the family member who has died (or who is otherwise not capable of conveying his or her wishes). While it includes a place to record the answers, more importantly it asks the questions — most of which people never think to ask. Things like:
You are generous and trusting. Help your family track down all those things you loaned — or let them know to leave well enough alone.
Here to Hereafter has forms for detailing the location of everything you own and have loaned to others. No longer will there be any nagging questions about what got lost in the shuffle.
Don’t take my word for it — I wrote the system.

Warning: Do NOT buy any book, system or program for conveying information about your wishes and your estate unless it meets the following FOUR criteria:
There are a lot of “half-baked” products out there. I want to give you four criteria you absolutely, positively must review before you commit time to working with any intergenerational communication system for end-of-life planning:
1) Thorough Checklists. Checklists that go beyond the needs of any individual, but by being thorough, you will be assured of addressing everything. There are checklists available everywhere, but none of them go into the depth that Here to Hereafter does.
2) Concise Storage. The optional PanaVu®Here to Hereafter storage system provides a place not only to record your information and wishes, but also provides a place to keep original documents. All in one convenient place. The alternative of simply using a common binder with add-in pockets may work for some people, but will generally encourage the goal of “keep-everything-in-one-place” mind-set.
3) Immediate Access. Can your family get to the information immediately. Some programmers have developed clever online systems. But, think of the scenario where someone has to know where you stored this computer file on line and then print it. And, on a computer, there is no accommodation for storing your original documents in a logical and organized fashion.
4) Security Over Your Information.There is a trade-off between having the information easily available and invasion of your privacy. If you purchase the binder, the Here to Hereafter system allows you to sign your name on a sealing tab. While the seal will not prevent someone from getting into your information, you will certainly know that your privacy has been violated.
You easily get more than your money’s worth, and your family gets even more than that —
THEY GET PEACE OF MIND!
You can obtain this valuable system by simply downloading it directly to your computer. Print the forms on your own printer and in five minutes you are ready to start recording everything your family will need to know. If you are not in a position to download your own pages and print them immediately, you have the option of receiving a fully-printed version for only $10.00 more (including shipping). Just indicate your choice in the order system below.
In summary, here’s what you get for your $97.00:
From Here to Hereafter: Everything My Family Needs to Know
is a planning and document system that will organize answers to every question your family will have about the intentions and affairs of a family member who has died, or who is not capable of conveying his or her wishes.
The system can be purchased with a patented PanaVu® binder that allows you to complete our checklist as well as include important original documents or copies of documents for immediate access at the time of need. This means you don’t just check the box stating that you have a Healthcare Power of Attorney you actually enclose a copy of it. In this example, it would all be together in Section 2: Medical. All your information about this topic is in one place:
Our system has ten pre-established categories plus two for any others you may choose. Ours include:
Tab 1: PERSONAL
Tab 2: MEDICAL
Tab 3: FINANCIAL RECORDS
Tab 4: REAL ESTATE PAPERS
Tab 5: PERSONAL PROPERTY
Tab 6: RETIREMENT DOCUMENTS
Tab 7: WHOM TO CONTACT
Tab 8: INSURANCE POLICIES
Tab 9: YOUR FINAL WISHES
Tab 10: LOCATION OF YOUR WILL
The Here to Hereafter system is extremely thorough and it suggests a huge range of things to consider. Obviously, not everyone owns an airplane or even an an IRA, but there are spaces to provide information about everything a family will need to know — even if some spaces are intentionally left blank.
There is no more complete system available today.
