A comprehensive, step-by-step resource, Ethical Wills gently guides us through the process of creating what can be one of the most valuable and cherished documents we leave behind. Clarifying and communicating the meaning of our lives for those who will survive us, an ethical will helps us reflect on and share our life's experience. Those who want to be remembered authentically and for their gifts of heart, mind, and spirit will take satisfaction in knowing that what they value most is "on the record," not to be lost or forgotten. Both a practical and a spiritual tool to use at any stage of life, Ethical Wills helps readers create, preserve, and share this important document with friends and family.
