An insightful guide on preparing for the worst, this book explains how we can minimise the suffering for surviving family members by taking advance action to create a Legacy of Love. Grief expert and inspirational speaker, Gemini Adams takes us on a practical journey of discovery, teaching us that our real wealth lies not in our Financial Assets but our Emotional Assets—our stories, lessons, values, and more importantly, our love and affection—tangible things that will alleviate our family’s suffering and leave them with a priceless gift to be treasured forever.
Your Legacy of Love
Imagine the worst has happened, an accident, plane crash or terminal illness. Your children, family and friends must now survive without you. Perhaps you wrote a Will, leaving your house, car or some cash to help them with their loss. But unfortunately, these 'things' won't alleviate the shock, depression, and loneliness of their grief.
Your 'Financial Assets' won't provide the ongoing love and support they'll need, as author Gemini Adams discovered when she lost her Mum to cancer at a young age. Wondering if her desire for a more loving legacy was shared, she questioned the bereaved, interviewed leading experts, and started a survey asking:
If one of your parents died, what would you prefer: to inherit their wealth, or a letter saying how much they loved you?
Over 90% expressed a wish for the loving letter.
Gemini discovered that survivors really need our 'Emotional Assets', the unique elements that make us who we are: our memories, stories, lessons, guidance and more importantly, our love and affection. In this book, she explains how to create a continuing bond, by sharing these in Your Legacy of Love, to alleviate your family's suffering and leave them a priceless gift that will be treasured forever.
