Wit & Wisdom

“No one would remember the Good Samaritan if he’d only had good intentions; he had money as well.” (Lady Margaret Thatcher)


We thought the service you performed for us was perfect. We are so thankful you explained the difference between a "Will" and the "Trust" that you set up for us. We have shared this with several people in hopes they would see the important differences." (John & Sandy S., Meridian, Idaho)
