reality of the death of a loved one. When the loved one is a parent or spouse,
there may also be the additional responsibility of seeing to their affairs after
their demise. This responsibility can also take place upon the death of a child,
other relative, or even a close friend if they've asked you beforehand to take
on that duty and you agreed.

Newly revised and updated, How to Administer an Estate is a step-by-step,

•  How do you “open” an estate?
•  How do you take inventory and distribute an estate’s assets?
•  How do you pay off any claims against the estate and estate taxes?
•  What are your powers as the executor over the estate?
