Death is not a popular subject. We don’t ever want to think of our own mortality, or that of our loved ones, but the hard truth is that it is something we will all face eventually. While this topic is an uncomfortable one, it is something we should all tackle sooner rather than later. After a death, loved ones left behind are not typically in the frame of mind to want to make monetary decisions. Careful planning beforehand could help ease the the pain in the aftermath of loss.
