I’m not a Facebook user, but I enjoy WJ on line, especially the Friday Viewpoints Extra. I would like to add even more to the recent end-of-life discussion thread [Have that discussion and more, Viewpoints, April 27], and provide a more detailed checklist for the before and after aspects. Below are two invaluable resources on the NOLO.com website https://www.nolo.com.

NOLO provides free consumer-friendly legal information of the highest quality, as well as a lawyer directory.

These two books (available at the Oak Park Public Library and online) include step-by-step instructions along with links to online resources, such as downloadable forms pertaining to all the details we and our families need to consider.

Get It Together – Organize Your Records So Your Family Won’t Have To and The Executor’s Guide – Settling a Loved One’s Estate or Trust

I am not affiliated with this company in any way.

I hope this is helpful.
