Speaker referred to this subject as a "fluff" topic but he helped me to realize the importance of factoring in the human aspects in estate planning. Great speaker and great topic.

While this topic may be considered to be slightly "fluff" (as stated by the lecturer), it gives the practioner many things to consider that they usually do not think about.
