Ruth is a senior who participated in the 2012 Wills on Wheels event Nov. 19 at the Shamrock Senior Center in partnership with Bank of America. Ruth’s financial problems began when she went through a divorce, and she and her four children lost their home. Now forced to start over and find a new house, she finished her education and was a secretary for 28 years and a teacher for six. Now 65, she’s still making house payments and wouldn’t have been able to afford vital estate planning services otherwise.
“I’m so thankful for this service,” Ruth said. “I don’t have much, but this makes things smoother for those after me. I’m thankful that LSSP sees the need to help elders out.”
