Gifting

WHAT IS A GIFT?

A gift is an irrevocable transfer of an asset without consideration from one person to another. A gift may be of tangible assets such as real estate, jewelry and physical objects or of intangible assets such as shares of stock, investment accounts or even insurance policies. Of course cash is great. 

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY IRREVOCABLE?

Irrevocable means that the gift is complete and you will not get it back. That sounds simple, but there have been many parents that thought that what they gave could still be theirs when they wanted it back. It is important to understand that it is no longer yours and if your child chooses to misspend your gift there is very little you can do except never give again. It is a serious decision which should be carefully thought out with full knowledge and understanding that you will never have access to that property again.

Thank you from the Kohlmans

How do you come up with words to thank everyone that touched Devin and our families’ hearts? So many come to our minds and many more we still do not know. 

We start by thanking the kids. Again, there are so many kids. A few special names come to mind: Zach Murphy, close friend; Caden Swander, close friend and neighbor; Claudia Rosiar, friend and prom date; Hailey Ball and Ryan McDougall, friend who helped start “Team Devin” shirts. Your friendship and kindness were admirable, as was that from all the kids.
