If You Cried When Jack Thornton Died, This Blog Post is for You!Are you one of the millions of viewers who are binge-watching #WhenCallstheHeart, presented by the Hallmark Channel?

I sure am.

Along with the other “Hearties” across the nation, I was reaching for the Kleenex when Jack Thornton's life was tragically cut short on a routine training mission.

Here he was, a newlywed with a bright future to anticipate with his beloved wife Elizabeth, and everything they were dreaming of for a life together  was cut short as a result of a training mission gone very wrong.

Not long before this ill fated end to their fairy tale life, Jack bought some land upon which to build a dream home.

This inquiring mind and practical gal wants to know …

  • Did he designate Elizabeth as his beneficiary? He bought the land before they wed. If he didn't make this designation, it could be that the land would pass to his mother or his brother or someone else he may have designated.
  • Did he designate Elizabeth as the beneficiary to any of his life insurance or other benefits before leaving for this ill fated mission?
  • Will Elizabeth be able to access his bank and investment accounts to help her navigate life as a widow and a single mother?
  • Did the two of them ever talk about his final wishes so she could honor them in the event that the unthinkable should happen?

These are important questions that people in real life need to consider, just in case life takes an unexpected turn.
