Will Preparation & Updates

A will is a document in which a person specifies the method to be applied in the management and distribution of their estate after death. Dying without a will leaves an estate “intestate” and will result in a court appointed lawyer to assign a suitable executor. This process is slow and doesn’t result in an orderly handling of the estate.

“Some years ago attended a presentation by Gardens of Gethsemani at our church and found it very informative, after which my husband and I made all our ‘pre-arrangements.’ Highly recommend this to everyone.”

“I had often wanted to end my days at Gardens of Gethsemani, but for some time, I put it off. Finally, a death in my own family prompted me to take action and request a meeting. During and after the meeting, with a well qualified representative, I felt much better. I feel that by arranging a place for myself and others, my earthly remains are secure, in holy ground and a sign for those following us of what we all stood for when we lived.”
