GUEST BLOGGER: CALLIE WARD
This past fall, I lost someone very near and dear to my heart, my beloved grandpa. Even as a 30-year-old, this loss was extremely hard for me and my family emotionally. But the positive side of it was my grandparents had previously set a plan and were organized in their finances, easing the burden of their children and grandchildren during this time. Dave Ramsey says “Having a plan in place is one of the best ways to say “I Love You” to your family,” and that is one of the legacies my grandpa left. It motivated me to get all my financial documents in order and leave the same legacy to my family.
So, what do we need to do?
I started creating my own financial binder using what USU Extension has shared in the past right after my grandpa’s funeral- it is that important to me! I’m doing this to honor my grandpa’s legacy and if you love someone, how will you honor them and why is it important to you?
If that is not enough of a reason, here are some other things to ask your self-
