Hi all:

Thanks for your responses to my wonderings. It seems that taking your stock certificates and stuffing them in a lock box (or under the mattress?) is not such a brilliant idea.

And I always thot my Dad was brilliant. Maybe he just liked counting the things every so often. But he did take them all and kept in a safe.

Can't ask him; he's gone to that big stock market in the sky. But I still wonder. He peeled off a few now and then to buy something (car) but other than that they just sat there. But then he had a trust set up.

Is that the secret? Is there a Trust Expert among you all that can shed some light here???

In the dark...
