The Avalanche and the Executor
The final rest of a friend and the avalanche of events
by B. J. Doyle

Anticipated or not, death comes to all and treasures of the estate must be distributed. Sami and Buddy are two outdoor enthusiasts. This is the step by step process they take as they prepare one to be the Executor after the death of the other. Buddy’s task of distributing a lifetime of assets while dealing with his personal loss hits an unexpected wall of ice as grasping relatives interfere. Disrespecting the spirit of the legal will, one relative demands a greater share of the remaining assets which leads to serious and costly complications. The avalanche and aftermath detail events that occur while closing the estate. Written notes of one’s wishes, a legal will and files of information are woven through the story of these two friends. Simple steps are incorporated in the telling of this tale. These are steps everyone should take to avoid an avalanche of events after death.

B. Doyle writes from the heart. This informative & poignant book provides a glimpse of dear friends as they cope with end of life planning. She gives the reader an insight into the emotional aspects as well as practical information on the legal implications of dealing with the loss of a loved one. A must read. Joanne Robertson. B.A. B.S.W. This book is an excellent resource for anyone planning to write a will. The author presents a number of points that I did not think of in my own preparations. What could be a very dry subject is presented with humour and imagination. D. Doyle B.Sc. M. Sc. A totally unique experience of a fasinating story woven with practical information. R. Cinel. B. Ed.
