OLLI Talks: Preparing The Perpetual Gift of a Legacy Letter (Online)OSHR 3135
A legacy letter (also called an "ethical will") is a written document that allows you to share your life lessons, express your values and transmit your blessings to future generations. A legacy letter is shorter than a memoir, typically just a few pages. Writing one is a rewarding experience that creates an enduring gift for your family and friends. This online workshop includes discussion and brief writing exercises to help you examine your life history, explore your values, and capture essential insights. It offers advice, encouragement, and a model structure to help you draft and complete your own legacy letter.
Jay Sherwin has practiced law, given away money for five different charitable foundations, and served as a hospital chaplain. In 2019, he created the Life Reflections Project to educate people about legacy letters, ethical wills, and other legacy documents. Jay has extensive experience facilitating online adult learning programs and he has offered this presentation for OLLI programs nationwide.
