The Widow's Resource: How to Solve the Financial
and Legal Problems That Occur Within the First Six
to Nine Months of Your Husband's Death
Julie A. Calligaro
Happily married couples might prefer to die together, peacefully in their sleep. Unfortunately this seldom happens, and if the husband dies first, this book will help the widow deal with the legal and financial problems occurring within the first 6-9 months. Each chapter has a specific topic [Getting Organized, Probate, Applying for Insurance Benefits, etc.] with a "to do list", sample letters if appropriate, with short, pithy instructions in understandable English. There's a good index as well. If the wife was the principal breadwinner, this book applies equally to the surviving widower. Makes a practical gift to the recently bereaved.
