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 for each other.
My father gave each of us the treasure of unconditional love. When Dad smiled at you, you knew that he loved you just the way that you were, and he never thought about how to “fix” you. There were many times during Dad’s chemotherapy-induced illness that I marveled at his great and caring attitude. I would often say to myself, “Rick, try to be more like Dad!”
My dad taught me how to live as a caring—and thus successful—person. He lived out many of the rules of success that have come to be my life standards. Richard Law lived and died loving others and being loved right back. That is a successful life!
Seven Rules for Life:
Good-bye Dad! I pledge to live and love more like you!
My wife and I had our first child three years ago. That’s when we decided to set up a trust, should anything happen to either of us. We reached out to Zach Hesselbaum to help us out. He was very thorough and professional throughout the whole process. Zach went above and beyond to make sure that we understood every detail of setting it up and he did an excellent job. We recently had our second child a few months ago. With the new baby, he helped us make the necessary revisions to the trust. Zach made this process great for us! I would definitely recommend using him for any of your estate planning needs!
