OOOH par i set up properly it is the key to true enjoyment of your property while you are alive as it only takes effect upon your death. It is wise to have a will, but some people need convincing as to its importance. Without a will there is no personal direction as to disposal of the person's estate after death. If we die without a will, legal expenses will be incurred which might swallow up the little we do own. A good will does three things: 1. It satisfied the owner that his wishes will be carried out 2. It avoids legal expense and delay. 3 It overcomes resentment among the beneficiaries. Of these three the last is perhaps the most important. Human nature being what it is, a family never really knows one another, until they share an estate. Parents do an uncommon act of kindness to FABRIC SALE UNBLEACHED COTTON-, ARNEL J19 INDIAN COTTON ____ POLY-COTTON KNIT 2 3-99 jnafQ their children, not only by designating how the bulk of the estate is to be shared, but by carefully stating who is to receive their smaller personal possessions. SHARING There is always the emotional aspect of sharing parental belongings. Adults remember the contents of their parents home long after they move into places of their own Some have a sentimental attachment for such things.

The hours ahead are yours to do with as you please. No watching the clock, no fighting rush hour crowds. It's time for a leisurely breakfast, dressing casually, strolling through the neighborhood, watching TV, reading, puttering around the home. But this can't go on forever. Soon, you run out of projects at home, you grow weary of visiting other idle men and women. TV, magazines and movies pall on you. Your welcome at the son or daughter's home begins to wear thin. You lost your appetite, become irritable and disagreeable. Time drags. You're at a loss as to how to fill it. For some, it is a tragic time. One-third of all suicides in the United States are over age 65. The reasons are well known. Active society rejects the retiree. Intellectually and sociologically, he becomes less involved, less interested in problems of the world. He becomes lonely. He has ceased to be of any "use." Sooner or later, the agonizing question has to be faced: Is life worth living after 65? According to Dr. Frederick C. Swartz, chairman of the American Medical Association's Committee on Aging, enforced idleness robs retired persons of the will to live full, well rounded lives, deprives them of opportunities for compelling physical and mental activity, and encourages physical atrophy and decay. The retired worker is robbed of initiative and independence. As a result, his physical and mental horizons become narrowed so much that he succumbs to habitual and complusive grumbling about his complaints. Whatever the precise percentage adversely affected by retirement may be, the problem exists and, psychologically, retirement at 65 does mean "going over the hill" for many. But it doesn't have to. The main factor in growing old is inactivity. That is why the experts insist that anyone approaching retirement age should involve himself in actively preparing for it The old notion of retirement as a withdrawal into seclusion, a shrinking from society, is obsolete. Retirement is a perfectly normal evolution in the pattern of living. According to Mortimer Adler, retirement "should be a transition from toil to leisure from devoting part of one's time to earning a living to devoting all of it to living well." It should be thought of as a graduation, a moving up from a lower to a higher grade of life. x Physical or mental'decline in age is largely a matter of attitude. But one who is prepared and has the proper outlook toward retirement knows that age is no obstacle to achievement and fulfillment. Next: Don't Let Life Pass You By. -The Herald Family IT'S NEW!
