Different ways to leave your timeshare

Leaving your lover is a big focus of pop music. Michael Bublé sings "It's a Beautiful Day" now that his lover is gone away. Paul Simon offers that there's no "need to be coy, Roy. Just get yourself free." But what if the loved thing is something only a parent could love?

Tim Conway's Dementia Leads To Legal Battles Among Family Members -- Don't Let This Happen To You

The family of Tim Conway--co-star of the Carol Burnett Show--has recently announced that he is suffering from dementia. Progression of the disease is advanced. Conway is no longer able to take care of his own daily needs, and he is largely unresponsive.

The 'death tax' is dead. The need for estate plans remains

This is a midterm election year. Among accomplishments claimed by the Republican Party controlling national government is the passage late last year of major tax reform.

Too often it doesn't even make it onto the radar and what results is unwanted pain and expense down the road.

2 tools for ensuring financials for a disabled adult child

There's a notable quote that goes, "No parent should have to bury a child." As the original source of that phrase also said, it's unnatural. The notion makes sense.
