“Where there’s FAITH, there’s HOPE. God is an awesome God.”

Cooke’s will was amended eight times prior to his death and named not one but seven co-executors.

The most important lesson from the Cooke estate is the importance of a well-thought-out estate plan created with the advice and guidance of an experienced estate planning attorney.

*Hire an estate planning attorney and name just one executor to your will.

ENTERTAINMENT

“I don’t think you have to shout it from the rooftops but I think you have to stand for something, and if you’re not standing for anything. You’re really just serving yourself, period, end of story.”

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
