Good evening Dolls,

Although no one won the gift card, I hope you had the opportunity to review and learn about the importance of having your affairs in order in the event of an untimely death of a loved one.  Knowing the process and understanding the importance of planning makes things easier during the grieving process.  This is one less problem you have to think about.

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to email me @: thefinancialcomforter@gmail.com

Have a beautiful and blessed week!
