I wrote this note three weeks ago, but read in yesterday's Chron that Mr. Bruss passed last Wednesday!
Real estate columnist Bob Bruss wrote a compelling piece in September--he came out of life-or-death surgery and realized that even he was unprepared for his passing. He'd refinanced a number of properties and forgotten to put them back into his living trust (or had forgotten to get them into the trust after closing). As penance, I guess, he wrote a clear and cogent piece on the value of and linkage between wills and living trusts. eMail me for a copy and then email former school board member Dewey Watson of Tierney, Watson and Healy at email@example.com to get going on this stuff
