After losing two brothers and a SIL in the span of 17 days in April, I am trying to get my affairs in order. I thought I was well prepared for my wife to take over if I died. I had a spread sheet where all the accounts were, telephone numbers for each account and the balance in each account. And also all the log-in info. After a very long talk with my nephew, who is handling his dad's estate, I realize I am not and have been working on this the better part of the morning. My brother had auto-pay on some things, but not all, even when it was available. His wife is now getting past due notices and is in a panic. My nephew is handling it, but it got me working. Besides all the account info, I am working on what is auto pay, what must be paid with a check, etc. There are a lot of accounts I never thought of. Newspapers (3) magazines (4) the water bill, water softener bill. The list goes on. Where all the checks for the different accounts are located. Little stuff like that. Anyway, make sure you have all that info available if your spouse suddenly passes away. I hope that doesn't happen to anyone, but make it easier on the surviving spouse to provide the needed info. Yes, I am in a dark mood the last 6 weeks.
