From the desk of the DG: Christmas Message 2017

22nd December 2017Brian McMillan0

Dear Reader,

The Christmas songs keep on telling us that Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year.

For most hopefully it is, but for many people and families especially, the loss of a parent, husband or wife, child, brother or sister or close friend during the preceding year can be a time of great sadness, and occasionally tinged with bitterness.

Death at whatever time of year brings with it its own unique problems, if they died without making a Will, the loss may be harder to bear; if the deceased was the main or only breadwinner and their death without a Will has brought financial hardship upon the family making Christmas almost impossible especially where there are young ones.

With the coming of the New Year, please make sure that in the event of something unforeseen happening to you, you had enough foresight to ensure all your estate is sorted – making a Will won’t take away the pain of losing a loved one, but it may help lessen the loss by ensuring your loved ones knew you cared enough to plan. Many families find that their grieving cannot begin until the problems that intestacy can bring are sorted.

Do not delay making those decisions like so many good intentions we make after Christmas fall by the wayside, it will bring peace of mind knowing your loved ones are cared for, it will also bring comfort to those left behind.

All the staff at the Society of Will Writers wish you all a very Happy, Healthy New Year.

Sincerely Yours,

Brian W Mcmillan
