Joe Gamble At Rest

as reported by samantha spade

Joe Gamble died a horrible death, poisoned by his friend Johnny DoGood.  Once the dust settled, Johnny did not get the $3 million life insurance policy Joe left him, because insurance companies will not pay out the murderer of the deceased.

But because of one certain persistent investigator, Joe can now be truly at rest, because the rest of his wishes were followed.

Under his Will, his housekeeper, Abby Stern, inherited several million dollars of assets that were in his name at his death, plus the life insurance.  And his wonderful niece, Candy Sweet, was well taken care of by the over $2 million he left to her via his Living Trust, once I found it in his candy jar. 

And, really, Joe got his fondest wish.  His ill-advised tests of his friends and family did in fact reveal who was true and trustworthy and who was not.  I’ve often noticed, by the way, how true and trustworthy women can be, which is not to say that Johnny DoGood is the only type of man out there…

I hope all of you have learned that lesson that Joe should have also learned.  Don’t tempt fate.  More important, having an organized estate plan assures that your assets go where you want without unnecessary costs, such as having a private investigator have to search out the bits and pieces that add up to your current plan.
