in
Fallin, Randy 2014.jpg

Like many people, you might not particularly enjoy thinking about your estate plans, but such planning is necessary to make sure your assets go where you want them to go. And it’s just as important to regularly review your plans with your tax, legal and financial professionals in case any changes are needed.
For instance, some of your wishes expressed in your will may be overridden by beneficiary designations you filled out years ago. If these designations become outdated, your assets could be passed to those you didn’t intend.

Fun with friends at the Bible museum

Well folks, I had such a great visit with Erma Hudson that I am still enjoying the afterglow. When my niece Jane was here, I was recovering from my five days in the hospital, but we had a great time without doing much gadding about.

The thing I possibly enjoyed most was our trip to the Dallas Living Bible Museum at 500 Park Lane. I tell you the address in case any of you want to follow up on it, come over and see for yourself.
