An Example of How It Works
Bruce Jacobson '66 has fond memories of his six years at Breck. Now retired from practicing medicine, Bruce and his wife Ann Morrissey took a careful approach to estate planning a few years ago. "I got some books, talked to friends and relatives and interviewed three attorneys," he says, "before I found the right person and the right advice." He and Ann feel strongly about making their wishes known and keeping their wills up-to-date. "No one really likes to think about it," Bruce observes. "It was hard to get started, but we worked together and feel confident that we can help support our favorite charities as well as family members."
