The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm Managing Partner, Shannon Pawley, Writes About The Importance Of Including Funeral Plans In An Estate Plan.
Estate & Asset Protection Attorney and Managing Partner, Shannon Pawley, points out that having funeral arrangements specified in an estate plan takes all the burden off of loved ones left behind
DECATUR, GA, June 10, 2021: Shannon Pawley, Managing Partner of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new blog on the law firm’s website entitled “Establish Funeral Arrangements In Your Estate Plan.” Ms. Pawley encourages readers to learn from COVID-19 and to plan for the unexpected.
As Pawley points out, “You certainly cannot plan your entrance into this world, but you can absolutely plan your exit from it down to the smallest details. And,” she adds, “as we have learned in the past year and a half, once you have a family and some assets, it’s never too soon to plan for the eventuality of your own death.”
“If you have ever experienced the loss of someone close to you, especially if that loss is sudden and unexpected,” Pawley writes, “you already know how emotionally difficult the days, weeks, and months after that event can leave you. It’s difficult to carry out the simplest tasks when suffering the loss of a loved one, let alone having to make important decisions.” According to Pawley, “Having an established estate plan is also the best way to avoid conflicts that might arise among loved ones, especially when emotions are already strained.”
