You may find trying to write this type of
letter to someone you love an almost impossible task.
You really should persevere, for if you do; you will
ensure the person has something very special in the
event that something was to happen to you.
The content of each letter will, of course, be deeply
personal. However, by way of example, a letter to
your family could express how much they mean to you,
how proud of them you are and your hopes for them
in the future. You might also want to express your
own core beliefs and what you hold important in life.
Such a letter could give them immeasurable comfort
and support in the future.
As these letters are so important, we believe that
they should be written on paper and stored in sealed
envelopes somewhere very safe at home or better still
held by a Custodian such as your Solicitor or Bank.
In the event of
your death, your Executors can inform the Custodians
and the letters can be sent in accordance with
your instructions. This will mean that any particularly
sensitive letter can be dispatched without fanfare.
