BY ANNIE LANE
I want people to know how difficult it is to deal with life after a spouse dies. This includes grieving ahead of everything else, but while doing so we must deal with all the things that need to be settled, such as people to notify and arrangements for the living. I have been an executor for three small estates (under $1 million). The last one, which was unexpected, was a special challenge. No will, no book to go to for passwords for the computer, no final requests and a spouse whose husband did everything.
I cannot advise strongly enough how important it is to leave your papers (divorce and marriage certificate), passwords, life insurance companies, bank info, investments and anything else that the survivor needs to know with them or a family or friend you trust.
There is not one comprehensive list to check off all the tasks that need to be done. Lawyers, probate, Social Security and the funeral home all have their lists. So it is up to the survivor, usually an adult child, who has to do everything. — A Busy Daughter
Dear Busy Daughter:
This is one of those subjects that no one wants to think about, but you are so right. Thanks for the reminder, and good luck with your important work.
