When someone in your family dies, it can be a particularly emotional and traumatic experience. However, that doesn't mean that you still won't need to handle the practical aspects of someone passing on. It can be painful, but someone influential in the family has to go through and manage all of the details immediately after a person dies. Think of some of these situations where a strong personality will have to overcome obstacles. If there was negligence in the death, someone might have to pursue a wrongful death suit. There are funeral expenses that have to be dealt with. It's essential that someone in the family understands what the grieving stages are and if family therapy would help. And, someone who has a power of attorney has to make it through all the necessary legal paperwork.
