Access Supporter Leaves a Legacy With Estate Plan

You Can Too

We all lost a wonderful friend, Brad Heinrich, of Ronan on Jan. 15, 2009, as a result of a vehicle accident near Perma. PLWA was pleased to find that Brad remembered PLWA with a generous bequest in his will.

A native of Seattle, Brad had a career as a teacher in Alaska, but retired to Montana. He was always ready for a fishing adventure and many pleasant hours were spent in his quest for those elusive fish and the stories that came from those endeavors. He freely expressed his disappointment when friends didn't take time away from their work to enjoy fishing more.

Brad obviously understood the threats to the magnificent heritage given to us by our forefathers. His generous gift will help us protect public access to our National Forests, public lands and public waters. So we say so long for now, our friend, we'll see you again on the other side.

If you would like leave a legacy that can make a permanent difference, all it takes is a simple statement like this in your will or trust:

I give, devise, and bequeath ___________dollars ( $xx,xxx.xx ) to the Public Land/Water Access Association¸ Inc. of Billings, Montana.
