Just as a traditional will leaves monetary wealth to survivors, an ethical will leaves a wealth of experiences and lessons of life. Barbara shares stories and those lessons learned from her childhood, her travels, and her community involvement through her book, “Legacy, An Ethical Will through Life Stories.” She shares unique tales gathered from the years when she worked in retail, as a business manager, as a financial advisor and as she faced unplanned events in her life. Attendees will be invited to share a story that is accompanied by a lesson. 
Barbara encourages others to consider writing their ethical wills so that their children and grandchildren will enjoy eternal connection with them.
