Obituaries and Family Tension
When a child looses a part, emotions run high. And old wounds tend to surface. Sadly, grown children can act like toddlers. This obituary, from Tampa, Florida, is an example of one child venting via his mother's obituary. When doing seminars I always tell folks to take control and nominate people who will handle the job correctly. Here in Wisconsin a person can complete an Authorization for Final Disposition -- a form appointing who should be in charge of a funeral. If you know your children will not act kindly, then take charge, and put someone else in charge of your final arrangements.
