It would be nice to be able to let my children know what their legacy will be, but I don't know that myself. With the hits that investors have taken and the possibility of catastrophic health events, I really have no idea. Whatever is left will be divided equally among my children. If I were going to do something different, that is something I would share with all of my children ahead of time.
