Losing a family member is always hard. It’s not merely the grief that is so difficult to deal with. It’s also the confusion and the stress that comes along with the myriad practical issues that need to be addressed. So many details must be attended to, and so many loose ends must be efficiently tied. But how do you even know where to begin?
