The passing of Prince in 2016 was surprising on many fronts. Foremost was the death at such an early age of such a prolific and well revered artist. Equally as shocking, however, was the revelation that he did not have a will to determine who will receive the proceeds of his estimated $300 million estate.   Experts' proffer it will likely take years to sort through the myriad of legal claims of family members alone.

Actually Prince is in good company as other prominent people such as Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Jr., Michael Jackson, Pablo Picasso, and Howard Hughes also went to their grave without a will either.

While this lack of foresight might be an eye opener for many, it shouldn't really come as a complete surprise as it is estimated that over 54% of Americans age 55 and older have also not taken the steps to create a will or trust for their estate. 

The three most common excuses offered were: 1) they didn't get around to it, 2) they underestimated the value of their estate thinking they don't have much to contribute, and, 3) they feel that lawyers are expensive.

On Wednesday, May 22, the Advancement Board of Saints Peter and Paul School is sponsoring an Estate Planning seminar. It will be held in Rm. U 217-218 on the top floor of the Ministry Center beginning at 6:00 p.m. and will conclude by 7:30 p.m., including allowing time for questions.

The goal for the evening is simple.....that all parishioners, who have been so generous to our parish and school over the years, walk out with sufficient knowledge to take the next step to ensure their hard-earned money will be distributed to the people and organizations they love and cherish.

Our presenter will be Dick Kuhn, a local attorney, parishioner, an alum of our school along with his wife and four children.  His office is in downtown Naperville, and he specializes in Estate Planning, Wills, Trusts, and Probate.
Those planning on attending are asked to RSVP to Frank Glowaty at 630-718-2134 by May 17.

Light refreshments will also be served.

When our school was founded in 1853....

 ...when tragedy struck somewhere in the USA or world, students didn't fund raise to support Red Cross humanitarian efforts as it wasn't until 1883 when Clara Barton founded that organization.
