Don’t make a Christmas wish, make a Christmas will!

Christmas is a time of celebration and sharing, though tragedy can strike at any time.  2016 was the year of celebrity deaths but Christmas Day has also seen it’s fair share of tragedy.

  • In 1953, nightclub star Eartha Kitt recorded “Santa Baby.” Fifty-five years later, on Christmas Day 2008, the sexy yuletide crooner passed away. Kitt, who’d gone on to fame as Catwoman on TV’s Batman, was 81.
  • James Brown, the 73-year-old Godfather of Soul, was to preform at B.B. King’s Manhattan nightclub on New Year’s Eve 2006 when he was hospitalized with pneumonia. On Christmas Day, his manager Charles Bobbit reported, “[Brown] was having pain, but then the pain went away, and he told me, ‘I’m going away tonight.'” And he did.
  • Dean Martin succumbed to respiratory failure on Christmas 1995 at age 78. Three days after the swingin’ star passed, the Sands, the long gone casino where Martin cavorted with Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr., joined other Las Vegas landmarks in dimming its lights in his memory.
  • Charlie Chaplin in his sleep on Christmas Day 1977. The ultimate star of silent film was 88. “You can say he died of old age,” Chaplin’s family doctor said.

If you want to give yourself and your family a Christmas gift of peace of mind, then leave a legacy by writing a will.
