If you have recently lost your spouse to death, first, our condolences. There are so many things to think about, and it is hard to keep things straight.
Our friends at Soaring Spiriits Life Foundation offer many resouces for those who widowed, either recently or long-term. Here is a link to a checklist of things that need doing right away. One of the best points on the checklist is that most of these tasks,while necessary, can be delegated. We hope it helps.
