My older brother passed away this past Fall without leaving a will, or any directives as to his wishes for his funeral and internment. As I've seen firsthand- those details need to be spelled out and legalized in advance for (our) loved ones.
So, that is my New Years resolution. Update our wills, shop and prepay for our funeral, ect.
I just read a blog about adoptees deathcerts, and as I am going to be doing my 'planning', I have every intent on making my family aware of my wish to MAKE SURE my dcert lists my Original Mother as my Mother, for me, and to make my record clear for heritage and genealogy of my future kinships.
Will my surviving family just be able to tell the funeral director 'my grandmother is named ....' without any legal process for my deathcertificate?
