What to do when you get the call? Well of course there is shock if it wasn’t expected, finality if it was expected and any other emotion that we all go through because how we all handle that final call is different for everyone. Since I am going through it as we speak and have had an opportunity to look back, I would do a few things differently.
When you are named the Executor (male), Executrix (female), there are one or two things you can get a jump on to make it easier for yourself. If you will need to have clothes picked up, it would be a good idea to call the Salvation Army ahead and see if you can schedule a pick-up of clothes if you know you’re going to need the service. The way the Salvation Army is heavily booked, this will make it easier for you to schedule a pick up.
If you have to travel out of state have a good gps so you can get around because there will be a lot of leg work to get done . If you don’t drive, bring someone who is a good driver and comfortable on unfamiliar roads.
Well, that’s it for now….Until next post!
