Young or old, a funeral is a difficult process. Military and non-military persons have different goals and expectations for end of life matters.
As an estate planning attorney, my goal is to educate and inspire a conversation with people and families needing help with end of life matters.
Funeral Benefits and Rights
Prior to death, a person can utilize certain documents to assist their family when a death occurs. One of these documents is a funeral directive. Basically, this type of document answers basic questions.
For example, selecting a specific ceremony based on our faith, identifying whether we want to be buried whole or cremated and selecting a location for our burial ground.
Additionally, you will find articles that address eulogies, military burial ceremonies, creditor claims and related issues and matters.
