When my wife and I sat down to settle my dad’s estate, I needed a beginning point. I copied the lists from my book, which I had already thoughtfully prepared. Then I personalized the list for my needs.
To simplify what I was doing, I needed a simple task list to tell me what to do. I did not need explanations and descriptions of the tasks or to be told why a task list is useful. I just needed to follow a task list.
For those of you in my situation, here is a task list of what to do when a loved one passes away. You will need to personalize it for your own situation. I think it will help you avoid overlooking things that are important to do.
