Betty White, passing of a legend and New Year 2022 – time to hope for the best and prepare for the worst

Sad news, the passing of Betty White, a legend of the screen, just before her 100th birthday. Betty made us laugh and cry for so many decades and now we just have her legacy.

Happy New Year for 2022, This year we all hope for the best in life, work and health, but it is really important to be realistic and prepare for the worst and make sure your legacy is secure.

Families enjoyed a Christmas together for the first time in 2 years and so now is the time to make sure you have planned and prepared for all stages of life so those who have to deal with things are not left with a real mess to sort out.

If you haven’t made a will and enduring power of attorney or advance health directive if you need one or updated yours in the last 5 years now is the time to get it sorted.

Don’t wait till it is too late, prepare for the worst and so you can get on with enjoying family, friends, new freedoms and hopefully soon travel again.
