"Our wills stipulate our estate will be divided between our children and an 'extra child,' our favorite charities, including Planned Parenthood of the Rochester/Syracuse Region. Each 'child' receives an equal portion of our estate. By adding an 'extra child,' we believe we leave behind a legacy of making the world a better place for society and our children."
