After I've Gone

We were contacted by David’s only child a week after his funeral. He used to be close to Sarah but in the last few years he had become less open about his finances. Now he was gone and she was his executor. There was a mountain of paperwork. Sarah had no idea where to start.

David’s widow was unable to help. She was in her late eighties at the time and David had always dealt with all the financial stuff. They had been married over 60 years. It was a very stressful time – just when they were both coming to terms with life without David. That’s why Sarah gave us a call.

We were able to sort through all his files and work out exactly what David had. Obsolete files were shredded, current paperwork was packaged up ready for the solicitor. We explained to Sarah daughter exactly what he had and what that would mean for her mum. The process was time consuming and not much fun – not to mention expensive. But it needn’t have been like this.

That’s when the idea for our After I’ve Gone booklet was born.

We committed to ensuring grieving families don’t have the same experience as David’s. We hope it helps your family after you’ve gone.

Now David’s widow has completed her own copy of our After I’ve Gone booklet. Sarah knows what’s in it and where it’s kept. But Sarah has also completed her own (and so has her husband). And both their grown up boys know what’s in them and where they are kept.
