Irish families would attend church in the morning, and in the afternoon they would celebrate with dance, drink and a feast consisting of bacon–not corned beef–and cabbage.
Today, this tradition has become a celebration of Irish culture across the world: the world’s oldest civilian parade, the New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade, features over 150,000 participants and is attended by nearly three million people. Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, Savannah and other cities also host massive parades. People wear green and dance and enjoy themselves. But who is the man we are celebrating?
Clearly, St. Patrick achieved an enduring legacy. Yet very little is known about the man himself, what he truly believed and valued most in life. Would he approve of green hats, green rivers, and green beer (perhaps consumed with a wee-bit-too-much exuberance)? We simply cannot know. He didn’t create a Legacy Plan, describing his wishes for future generations, and Swan Law wasn’t there to help!
Fortunately, you can easily create such a plan for your loved ones. A plan that provides for your financial and healthcare needs today, and ensures you give what you want, when you want, to whom you want… today, tomorrow and beyond. A plan, in short, that protects your loved ones and legacy.
We focus on creating a comprehensive plan that goes beyond the documents, that will safeguard your assets against even future life changes faced by your children and your grandchildren.
So this St. Patrick’s Day, don’t just think about whether you should have corned beef or bacon with your cabbage. Think about your Legacy, and contact us to make an appointment for your personalized Legacy Planning Session, where we can begin to design your plan for the future.
and your heart be light,
May good luck pursue you
each day and night.
