What if today was the last chance to speak to a parent or child you love? What do you need to say to them? What do you want to hear from them? In a world of events we cannot control, the conversations we need to have should not be postponed. The things we did and said and wish we had not... The things we could have said and did not...Families confuse money and love. Parents procrastinate about planning and often leave their family with problems about inheritance, responsibility, entitlement, and legacy. Adult children often feel uncomfortable opening conversations about finances, estate planning or end-of-life issues with their parents. Perhaps one of the most loving gifts parents can give their children is to share information children need to help parents as they age. This book is a wake up call for parents and adult children. It is a guide for conversations about money, entitlement, responsibility, forgiveness, love and legacy.

Helga Hayse educates people on the role that money plays in family relationships. She is a professional speaker and seminar leader for financial and estate planning groups who want their clients to learn more about overcoming resistance in dealing with dying and legacy. Her personal experience with transforming pain into regenerative legacy serves as a roadmap for parents and adult children to start the conversations that matter between generations. Her previous books include: Don't Worry about a Thing, Dear:Why Women Need Financial Intimacy and Reconstructing Aphrodite, profiles of women who have survived breast cancer.Review:
How little we understand about the mysteries of money and love and how they work together but all too often against each other. Helga Hayse helps us understand much that we ought to know on that score. She writes from the heart and she puts lucidly into prose good, sound and wise advice about the ways for us to begin needed conversations across the generation chasm and the divide that follows all too often from pain, hurt and misunderstandings. She wants, in the best sense, to help others and her book can indeed do just that. It can help provide the way for people who need to talk to each other about subjects that are not broached out of fear or anger. She has managed a distillation in Money, Love, and Legacy of poignant and revealing narratives, including her own compelling personal story, with guidance that is practical, sound and ultimately resonant with hope. --Michael Krasny, Host of KQED Forum, author of Off Mike: A Memoir of Talk Radio and Literary Life
None of us knows when our time will be up. We might live beyond 100 years or die with the next heartbeat. As a former ER physician, I ve seen families arrive too late for the conversations presented in this book. In my current role as a chaplain providing spiritual care, I ve seen the peace that comes when families can have the conversations that matter. Helga Hayse provides a gentle and clear guide to the territory most of us avoid- the conversations of the heart. Physicians, nurses, social workers, chaplains and others who guide individuals and families towards open, loving and clear communication will also gain tremendously from reading this book. --Bruce Feldstein, M.D., Director, The Jewish Chaplaincy at Stanford University Medical Center
A common sense approach to rethinking personal relationships in the light of not-so-intuitively obvious cognitive science discoveries. Makes you question many of your most cherished beliefs about yourself and others. --Robert Burton, MD., author of On Being Certain: Believing That You Are Right Even When You're Not
