It is a relief knowing that all your affairs are in order.  There are some things in life that cannot be anticipated.  It is important to know that if the unthinkable happens, your life goals and wishes will be preserved.  Many people wait until their sunset years to plan what will happen after a significant event like death, injury, or a change in significant relationship.  However, it is never too early to start planning for the future.  To achieve the minimum tax effect on your estate, early planning is important.  Having a well planned will and estate plan is something that is best developed over a lifetime.
            Wills and Estate Planning refers to financial, medical, and final wish decisions.  All are important.  Proper medical planning will ensure that your preferences and beliefs are respected.  With financial and final wish planning, a person does not only bequeath certain assets, but structures one's estate in order to continue to support the priorities and goals that one devoted his or her life to, whether it be a family, a cause, or a project or social improvement that one wishes to leave behind.
