Dealing With Inheritance Guilt

BagIn the midst of extreme emotion at the loss of a family member, sometimes inheriting a large sum can be too much for a grieving relative to handle.  This emotional shock can be eased by making a donation to a charity that the family member supported or doing something to honor the dearly departed with the newly acquired wealth.

See Alex Coppola, Easing a Client’s Inheritance Guilt, The Wall Street Journal, May 19, 2014.
