This question-and-answer book sets the stage for more knowledgeable conversations about the roles of executor, trustee and beneficiary. It does not focus on intricacies of law. Families will gain an appreciation and tolerance for the experience and education that go into making a good executor, a good trustee, and a good beneficiary. It’s the combination of education, experience, knowledge, tolerance, and a mutual desire to work together as a team that makes for a successful post-estate transition experience. There are no substitutes!
