Ninety-eight-year-old Findlay Ohio resident, Margaret Elizabeth Taylor, wanted to do something worthwhile with the $1.1 million estate she had accumulated as the proverbial Surprise Millionaire. But what she decided to do with the money was well, a little different.
She told her family that they would not receive any money from her estate because what she would do with the funds would benefit a whole lot of people. No, she didn’t leave the money to any charity that you would be familiar with. What she DID do with the money is rather shocking…
A quiet man in Chicago whose death didn’t really make the news certainly made the news recently. James A. Flavin, a man who wore old clothes, drove a beat-up car and lived in a small home in a poor neighborhood was thought to have an estate worth about $53,000. But then they opened that safe deposit box…
Like I was saying, farmers really are “salt of the earth” great people. I was touched by another farm couple (video) who blessed their community upon passing. There is really a lesson to be learned from these folks. Living a simple life blessed with relationships rather than material goods is really the way to go. I hope this is something the current generation can embrace and not forget. I have linked to a bonus video in which people fondly remember the sweet couple.
An immigrant couple who overcame great odds leave their entire estate to the United States of America. They wanted to thank their adopted home for the great opportunities given to them.
Have a great Memorial Day weekend!!
