This is a Diary with a personal story about wealth and taxes. My great-grandfather and grandfather (single male chidlren, like my dad) were very successful men. My great-grandfather built things, like roads and bridges. My grandfather was a rural doctor for 50 years. They both saved and saved. Invested. They didn't, outside of cloths, fast cars, and a joy of traveling the world live a life that remotely reflected the money they had. Their assests, mostly land and stocks were passed on to my father.
My father, who was a military guy for his entire adult life became a millionare overnight. My parents were confused to be honest, what to do with all this money.
