The death of a loved one, a family member, or a close friend is a painful reality we must all face at some point. Emotionally, we can’t plan for it. And when you add in the urgent tasks and important decisions you must make after their passing, ‘overwhelming’ can be an understatement.
At Ball Morse Lowe, PLLC, we know death is not a comforting subject. However, we also understand the importance of learning about this challenging time. We can know what to do and what to expect before a loved one passes, so our time for grieving and honoring our loved one is not lost or compromised.
When someone close to us passes away, there are things we need to do to manage their property and other assets. We can break the timing of these tasks into four phases: Immediately, 2-3 Days After Death, Before the Funeral, and After the Funeral.
This comprehensive checklist will break down these critical tasks and to-dos, complete with tips and other helpful information, to help guide you through this challenging experience.
