(*traditional law school humor name for wills and estates class)

Greetings, my fellow port swillers!

Got a rayther bizarre letter last evening announcing that our estate lawyer had died recently and, in its deftly understated phrase, “will no longer be able to be responsible for your estate planning matters”.

Well……..no.  I can see that.

I only met the woman once or twice, but as I recall she wasn’t any older than I am.   Evidently, she knew this was coming, as she had made advance arrangements for the transfer of her book o’ biznay to a couple other firms.  (The letter asks us where we want her copies of all our estate papers to be sent.)

Rest in peace.
