After a death...What do I do now?

A Practical Guide for Survivors

Death comes to us all. We will encounter it many times in our lives with the final encounter being our own eventual demise. It is human nature to avoid the topic. No one wants to deal with his or her own mortality. Very often, the tendency is to put off the discussion to a later date. We don’t want to deal with issues of death and the changes it brings until we must. Unfortunately, by the time they are forced to deal with these events, our survivors are faced with choices and tasks that are made much more difficult than they would have been had we taken the time to plan for that day that we all must face.
It is our survivors, and not we, who must make the final decisions and who must go about the sometimes unpleasant, and often overwhelming task of handling our “final affairs.” The administration of an estate can be difficult, but it does not need to be. Proper planning and organization now, while you are living, will make it easier for your survivors.
