Consider leaving your wishes for funeral plans, as well as how it will be paid for in your estate plan. Then, your loved ones will be able to go through the grieving process without having to worry about these things.
Making Arrangements for Incapacitation. Though it's something that we don't give much thought to, planning for incapacitation is an important part of estate planning. Who will take care of you should you be unable to care for yourself? Who will make decisions on your behalf, financially and for healthcare purposes? These things can be documented in your estate plan so that your loved ones will know your wishes for these situations.
