In connecting with the concept of an unexpected death thru Linda's(Timerlady)post most recently, and others in the past, it has occured to me that I should be better prepared than I am. What do I mean by that?...... Should something happen to me or my husband the one left behind would have so much to deal with. The emotional fallout is difficult enough, and then....there are all sorts of details that you don't often think of until you have to and are least able to. Between what happened to Linda and a coworker who also lost her husband unexpectedly this week, it is sinking in that I should keep a notebook that would be helpful to my husband should I die or become incapacitated; things that aren't in a will. We can also prepare one for me to be completely familiar with his information. This should include things like employer contact info, insurance policy numbers and contact info(life, home, auto, health), doctor's names and phone numbers, medications, the family lawyer's info, bank/retirement accounts; probably a whole host of other things. If you've been thru a loved one becoming seriously ill suddenly or passing away - what pieces of information do you think should be in that notebook?
