Death comes to us all and we are aware of that life fact and yet when it happens to friends and family, it is a very difficult time indeed and even if your loved one has been sick for some time now and the inevitable was going to happen, it still doesn’t make it any easier when the day comes and they close their eyes for the last time. If you are the head of the family and you are the one that everyone turns to in times of great difficulty then you have a lot of difficult decisions to make if the deceased hasn’t already made plans for you.
