When my grandmother died and I was asked to give her eulogy, I had, in my possession, one of her Bibles. In the margins of that Bible, she had written several things: words of wisdom, take-away points from some sermon or another, personal exclamations. In addition to that Bible, I also have several recipe cards, written in her sometimes-unsure script. These relics are precious; they are more valuable than a priceless antique or an original Monet. I am happy to have them. What I don't have, are her stories-those stories she would tell after dinner, or while she was stringing beans, or sewing-those stories that would pass on to me the beliefs, values, and experiences that had shaped her life. I cherish the few pieces of her story that remain, and I long for more. Ultimately, whether the writing you do in response to this Legacy of Words Workbook is done for your own benefit, or you plan to pass these words on to someone else, what you are committing to do is leave "just a little more" of yourself behind.

Your Legacy of Love

In this heartfelt and inspirational book, Gemini explains that our real "wealth" lies not in our Financial Assets, but our Emotional Assets: the stories, lessons, values, wisdom image, voice, laughter and love that makes us who we are.

Grief expert, Gemini Adams, wrote this Mom's Choice Gold Award Winning book, "Your Legacy of Love: Realize the Gift in Goodbye" to help others understand that writing a Will simply isn't enough. After losing her Mom to cancer, Gemini quickly discovered that an inheritance of money and material possessions doesn't give surviving family the ongoing support or continued connection they desire. Wondering if her need for a more loving legacy was shared, she started an online survey asking: "What would you prefer if one of your parents died: to inherit their wealth or a letter saying how much they loved you?" Over 90% expressed a wish for the loving letter. In this heartfelt and inspirational book, Gemini explains that our real "wealth" lies not in our Financial Assets, but our Emotional Assets: the stories, lessons, values, wisdom image, voice, laughter and love that makes us who we are. And how this purposeful activity, is not, as some might expect, a morbid task, but one that can bring incredible insight, peace of mind, and healing, especially for those dealing with aging parents, a terminal illness or loss. By capturing and sharing our Emotional Assets in a Legacy of Love, we can leave our children, partners, and grandchildren a precious parting gift, a timeless memento that will surely be treasured forever. Readers will also discover how to: - Write loving letters to gift as future surprises. - Encourage grief recovery for surviving family. - Provide them with ongoing emotional support. - Minimize effects of grief and bereavement. - Guarantee the preservation of special memories. - Capture and record their life story. - Limit stress surrounding end-of-life situations. - Achieve peace of mind and a sense of meaning to life. - Educate themselves and overcome denial about death and dying. - Plan a life celebration or funeral that truly reflects them.
