I understand that it is distressing to still receive mail in your father's name.

Well, the good news is that you eventually reach the point where it's comical.

My father died in 2002. I still get mail for him. I used to get phone calls too, from the NRA and the RNC. The NRA finally gave up when I said "Golly, you people really mean it when you say 'cold dead hands,' don't you?"

The third time the Republicans called after I told them he was dead I went the burst into tears route, saying something along the line of "What kind of sick [child of questionable descent] are you that you get your kicks by torturing me with reminders of my dead father?" I then took to Twitter and Facebook lambasting them. So far, so good.

P.S. As far as the inherited IRA is concerned, the title of it must include the name of the decedent.
