On Friday, April 6, Perrysburg Commons Retirement Center unveiled a Wall of Honor – a display featuring a picture of each veteran who resides at the center. 

Many residents, staff, families and visitors, along with the Schaller American Legion gathered to take part in the unveiling and celebration.
Abby Willman, a senior Bowling Green State University gerontology student worked with the Commons on the project.

Death and taxes…they’re something we all wish we could avoid. 

Just as careful preparation can make tax-time go more smoothly, thoughtful pre-planning can make funerals less burdensome for the loved ones we leave behind.

Funeral pre-planning is a step many baby boomers are taking, according to local funeral directors – with some reporting 40 to 50 percent of funerals now being pre-planned.


When helping families plan a successful retirement, I’m a big advocate of beginning with the end in mind.

In this context, having a goal of passing away with even a bit of money left over means you’ve planned well. The converse of that means you’ve passed away with no money left; you’ve run out. If a successful retirement plan means there’s some money left over at the end, then somebody else must receive that money. Determining how that’s handled is a basic function of estate planning.
