The Strangest Places

as reported by samantha spade

I feel compelled to report that again I am victorious over the obstacles Joe Gamble tried to put in everyone’s way.  I looked for weeks to find the Living Trust of Joe Gamble dated 2/19/2001.  After all, the trust owned a brokerage account worth over $2 million.

I left no drawer, file, picture frame, or book in the house untouched, but I couldn’t find it.  I was reduced to considering peeling off wall paper when I noticed his dishes in the dining room.  There really were some strange ones. 

I found that Trust rolled up in a very tall ornate candy jar of all places.  And Joe was playing another joke when he put it in that jar.  You see, that Trust left everything in it, to the tune of over $2 million now, to his niece, Candy Sweet. 

So the housekeeper didn’t get everything after all.  Even Joe Gamble made sure to look out for his own, so long as there was a top-notch investigator to track down all his little jokes.

Don’t count on having someone like me around after you die; after all, I’m in a pretty high risk job.  Instead, make sure you plan and organize your estate so it’s easy to find the important stuff.  My lawyers can help you do that if you call for an appointment at (815) 436-1996 to work on an estate plan.
