I’m what is politely called a senior citizen.

Do I remember my dad?

Why, yes, I know his full name and what he looked like. How he talked and a lot of what he said.

Do I remember my granddad?

Well, yes, sort of. His name was granddad and he had white hair. He liked gardening and he tickled his onions to make them grow. I don’t remember much more.

Do I remember my great-granddad?

Um. Well, actually no, not at all.

That’s interesting, Derek. So, you’re telling me that your Great-granddad left no footprint! Tell me, Derek, have you ever heard of a man named “Nobel”?

Oh yes. He invented dynamite and every year people are awarded Nobel prizes for various notable achievements.

Well, Derek, you might be interested to know that if Mr Nobel had been alive today, he would be somebody’s great, great, great, great, great grandfather. And yet, even you know of him!

Why was Nobel so different to my great granddad? Because he didn’t leave a bequest, he left a legacy!

If, like Nobel, you want to leave a legacy, then you must make sure that your trust deed is specially designed with that in mind. Otherwise, you’ll end up like my great granddad. No footprint.
