I Will Not Fail!!!

Home » Blog » Articles » I Will Not Fail!!!

So I’m writing an article on being a dad, on one day; being a grandfather. I’m getting a little choked up. I’m getting a little in my feelings because I’m not always the best dad, father or husband. I don’t know that I’ll be the best grandfather. I mean, I love my children. I have one in college. He’s doing well. He’s going to go to law school. I love my little girls. But I work too much. There’s too much to pay for. There’s too much to do. There’s too little time. But I bet you one thing, I have a binder in front of me labelled the McIntyre Estate Plan and I will leave a legacy for my children and grandchildren. I will not leave them to pick up the pieces of my mess and my life.

I’ve seen properties that, when people passed away, that were splintered into a million pieces among heirs because the person neglected to direct where their home went. So it went to their brothers, their sisters, and people who had already passed away. It leaves a mess. I’m too busy in my life right now, I promise you, and I miss my kids and I love them, and I wish I could stay at home with them more, but I will not leave them a mess to clean up because I was negligent and I didn’t do my duty as a father or as a grandfather or as a parent or grandparent and get my affairs in order.

My wife sat me down a few years ago and made me slow down and stop. She said, “Greg, the cobbler has no shoes. You have to sit down and you have to help. You have to slow down and plan. Let’s sit down with one of our attorneys  and let’s do an estate plan.” So, Brenton Begley, he’s a really, really sharp guy, sat down with me and Stef and we did our estate plan, we got our affairs in order. That’s where this binder comes from, it holds the deeds to properties, it holds our foundation, our work, our general durable power of attorney healthcare, power of attorney living will, and will. It holds trusts for the kids, testamentary trusts, that makes sure that a trustee is appointed even if something happened to Stef and me both at the same time. And the kids can still go to school, can still go to college, and that they don’t get cursed with a large amount of money at a young age.

Yeah, I might work too much, I might not be home as much as I should, I might not get to spend as much time with my kids as I would like, but I bet you I won’t leave them in a mess. I’ll do my duty to plan and to take care of my legacy for my children and grandchildren because those things matter, and they matter to me. If they matter to you, give us a call (704) 749-9244.
