    When Jim Gentil, a motivational speaker from Austin, spoke at the 2010 Chamber Banquet held at the Rita Blanca Coliseum on Thursday evening, April 8th, he posed a profound question to the guests in attendance:  How will you spend your dash? The dash is what may be found on a tombstone between a person’s date of birth and their date of death.  The dash is everything in between those two events, and the most important signification on the tombstone.  The dash represents that way a person has spent their life.

Little things mean a lot

    I know I shouldn’t be surprised by the little things in life that bring an unexpected smile or tear, but I am.  I should have walked long enough in my Christian life to know that God is interested in the little things in our lives, but I still marvel at them.

“Since we agree on how to divide up my mother’s property, can we skip going through any legal proceedings?”

Question:  My mother recently passed away.  She did not have a Will, but all she really had were her personal belongings.  She was living in an assisted living center (not in Dalhart).  She does have quite a bit of money saved in CD’s and savings.  We kept asking her about a Will, and she said that she didn’t want to mess with it and she knew that we (my sisters and I) would split everything up fairly.  One of my sisters is the beneficiary on the CD’s and the savings account, and I was a joint owner of her checking account.
