This dumb thing happened to my mother when my dad died suddenly - he came home from work and had a heart attack.

Being the self-destructively honest person that she is, she notified the bank probably the same day he died, and of course they froze every account that had his name on it. When checks started bouncing, she called the bank, and after she explained what had happened, the customer service rep said "Oh, you mean he wrote the checks *before* he died?"
