The photo above was taken of three ceramic wise men that we purchased about 35 years ago at our church’s Christmas craft sale. We have always treasured these three wise men ornaments. This is our first empty-nester Christmas, and we pause to chuckle as we recall our kids arguing over who got to hang the […]

Recently, I experienced that it is far more ‘profitable’ to ring bells for the Salvation Army when you partner up with an enthusiastic four-year-old granddaughter. Let me tell you the story, which illustrates some key principles on how to get people to say “yes.” It was the Saturday before Thanksgiving. My wife, Rose, my granddaughter […]

I have to confess that I love home-cooked turkey. I am crazy about Thanksgiving turkey and the turkey leftovers. When my wife, Rose, generously offers to send turkey home with our kids, I bar the door. Yep, I long for Thanksgiving Day, filled with all of the traditional foods and fellowship. For me, Thanksgiving’s attitude […]

We could see a man creating something with homemade tools in an undeveloped area across from the residences. We just had to get to […]

I will never take Santa Claus for granted again! Most of us grew up with Santa Claus as a beloved Christmas icon. Maybe you have one or two special Santa memories that you cherish. Did you take your kids to visit Santa and then tuck the photo away as a life-long Christmas treasure? I sure […]

My father, Richard Law, has died, but we celebrate his life! Those of us who recently gathered at the hospital for many days and then the funeral home represent a ‘blended family’ of lineal descendants, adopted children, and step-family. It has been amazing to experience the common expression of love and care from each one […]

How we think about things will then determine our actions and our reactions. Our actions and reactions will change our circumstances for the better or for the worse. The bottom line is that we have the power to change our lives by choosing to improve our thinking and responding. We have personal responsibility for choosing our thoughts and our actions.

Although Huntington’s Disease is a relatively rare disease that affects about 1 in 10,000 persons, the families that suffer from this killer often sustain a 50% casualty rate. Here at Law Elder Law, we have decided to help work toward a cure.
“Everyone in the office was absolutely wonderful to work with whether on the initial set-up of the trust, adjustment to such following my father’s passing, or processing of his home sale and proceeds.
They genuinely care for your family’s well-being and walk you through each step of the process. They are also exceptionally responsive even when parties involved live in different locations.
This is a definitely a team you can trust and one I highly recommend.”
W.W., Client of Law Hesselbaum
