Two thumbs up for doing your estate plan right

Posted in Estate Planning by Cesia Green on May 21, 2013

Roger Ebert, the film critic famous for popularizing the “two thumbs up” concept for movies, passed away last month after a long battle with cancer.

Ebert’s estate gives us an important lesson: take warnings from people close to you very much to heart. Ebert’s friend and co-host Gene Siskel died of a brain tumour in 1999. While you should keep your will and powers of attorney up to date generally, a friend or loved one becoming very ill or dying suddenly should always be a wake-up call to get  your own estate plan in order.
