Incapacity Happens

August 17, 2015

What does Dad want? Have you asked? How about Mom? Does anyone know what her wishes are?  Has anyone asked her? And is anyone really listening to what they are saying?

Life can turn on a dime. Incapacity happens. Wouldn't it be better to take some time now to get prepared?  There is no time like the present to ask questions and get some answers.  It’s never too late until it really is too late!

On February 17 at 6:30PM, Barbara Bates Sedoric will talk about planning for the end of life and what happens after death in the "Peace of Mind" series at the Portsmouth Public Library in the Levenson Community Room. The Peace of Mind series focuses on helping people prepare for and work through life's challenges.

Why Planning Ahead Matters in Life & Death

In 1903, my great-grandfather, George D. B. Bonbright sold a stamp collection to help fund and open his investment firm in Rochester NY with six employees.  George was a “life planner.” My grandfather was named a partner at Bonbright & Co. where he too was a meticulous planner. In 1958, my father began his 56 year career helping people plan. For over three decades, my husband Tom has served hundreds of families with planning their life’s transitions.
