Carissa Giebel column: Handling estate after spouse's death

When you lose your spouse, your world changes. This is especially true if your spouse was the one who made most of the financial decisions.

It's important to remember that there are several steps that must be taken. Most do not need to be done immediately, so it's OK to take some time to grieve. However, there are a few things that should be done as soon as possible. The deceased may have left some funeral or burial instructions. There may be cemetery plot deeds, mausoleum niches purchased, a prepaid funeral, a funeral trust, Cremation Society membership, etc.

Death certificates can be ordered ...
