What to do when someone dies: introduction
Welcome to the iMortuary original blog series entitled, “What To Do When Someone Dies.” We created this series in response to the need for greater consumer information for what to do when someone dies. As consumers increasingly turn to the Internet for information gathering, we acknowledge that funeral planning and estate matters represent a valuable topic.
Grief and loss are paramount when a loved one passes, and yet dealing with estate issues typically falls to those closest to the one who passed. Navigating the myriad of tasks and responsibilities can be overwhelming; it is our hope that this series starts conversations and provides thoughtful insight into these tasks. We also hope to convey a positive message regarding proper funeral planning and estate planning.
