Mail Tribune

Note: An ethical will documents one’s values and beliefs. It is not a legal document, but rather a personal letter or writing that identifies and describes the most important guiding principals in your life. Many people use an ethical will as the foundation for their estate planning and, even, business development. Ethical Wills are designed to be a legacy project that is passed on for future generations to consider.  At Documented Legacy, we’ve written ethical wills for families to include in the body of life story projects and memoir.
