Hi Crocket,

Your right, this is not something that everybody talk

about everyday. However, when disaster hits, before we

know it we're spending thousands of dollars for

unnessary items.

This is for anybody who don't know what to do, this

is my suggestions:

1) Does your spouse or your love ones know were all

of your assests located? Such as account numbers

to your stocks, mutual funds etc....

2) Medical Power of Attorney or Statutory Will

(Check with your state to see if these two forms

are free) If not satisfied, consult with your


3) Living Trust, this is very good because, it avoids

probates. Set this up the way you want it done and

it'll continue, even beyond death

(This one you'll have to see an attorney)

Wills, doesn't avoid probate.

4) If you buy a plot make sure the documents, records

and your plot can be transfer into surrounding area

and/or if you move to another state. (Make sure they

put it in writing.)

5) If you have kids, decide who is going to have

custody and/or guardian.

6) Check out discount caskets.

I hope this helps, any advice are welcome!
