SELFHELP GRIEF SMI

A practical guide to managing the difficult legal aspects surrounding the death of a loved one offers succinct advice and checklists for a range of practical topics, from funeral arrangements and social security to accounts and taxes.

Amazon Description:

Scott Taylor Smith, a venture capitalist and lawyer, had plentiful resources, and yet after his mother died, he made a series of agonizing and costly mistakes in squaring away her affairs. He could find countless books that dealt with caring for the dying and the emotional fallout of death, but very few that dealt with the logistics.
In the aftermath of his mother’s death, Smith decided to write the book he wished he’d had. When Someone Dies provides readers with a crucial framework for making good, informed, money-saving decisions in the chaotic thirty days after a loved one dies and beyond. It provides essential, concrete guidance on:
Making funeral and memorial service arrangements
Writing an obituary
Estate planning
Contacting family and friends
Handling your loved one’s online footprint
Navigating probate
Dealing with finances, including trusts and taxation
And much, much more
Featuring concise checklists in each chapter, this guide offers answers to practical questions, enabling loved ones to save time and money and focus on healing.
