Sorry for your loss.

Died... Much better than trying to make it sound like
"passing on"...

FIRST: Get your ducks lined in a row...
Then make whatever appointment you think is necessary

Make no major decisions or moves until you head clears...

Grief takes many forms

(if this is the end of long suffering your head may already be quite clear... (as you were grieving/mourning the loss of your partner during their trauma... It's okay to feel relief)).

- Get cash.
- Get 4 or 5 Certified copies of the ***** CERTIFICATE
- Find WILL/TRUST and/or LAST Wishes
- List all Property, TITLES, ACCOUNTS & Deposit Boxes

You need only take care of current business... Pay bills
and keep the water, power, phone and TAXES current...

(might want to double check if the property taxes have been done already (if applicable... Where we live December 10 is the big day)).

You need to take a friend, family or associate with you when you are attempting to hear things, get advice and define directions.

You will find you can sit through an entire meeting... words are exchanged... and yet you will emerge with little or no idea of what had just transpired.

Solution... Take notes!

I used a spiral note-book... and highlighted a check-off box for tasks yet to be completed...

Use the same notebook for EVERYTHING... it will tell you later what you missed... and what you've been through.

IT is TEMPORARY TRAUMA... and will pass with time.

In the meantime... you should take notes and reduce
conversations to ACTION ITEMS.

Check them OFF as you COMPLETE them

Keep putting one foot in front of the other

Make sure bills continue to get paid and you have cash available.

In order the take control of JOINT savings & checking...
Your BANKERS, AGENTS ... etcetera will need to see
the CERTIFIED ***** CERTIFICATE... but will usually be satisfied to take a copy.

If you own your home jointly with your husband...
It will be HIGHLY BENEFICIAL to get your home APPRAISED.

FEDERAL Tax law allows the current MARKET VALUE
to become your new tax basis.

Feel free to comment me back... (I come here almost daily)

    ***** I see ***** replace the "D" word for end of life CERTIFICATE...

    EVERYBODY gets to do it but it is profane to say it... (silly people).

    I apologize on their behalf

02 windstar sometimes wont start

It could be a faulty fuel pump relay. It should be in the power distribution block under the hood. Hold your finger lightly on it to feel for the click. Every time you turn the key from off to on, the relay should click-which then sends power on to the pump. Try replacing the relay or swap in a known good one, before condemning the pump.
The final test for a bad fuel pump is to check for power at the gas tank's fuel pump connector, while the engine is cranking over. Power there and no fuel pump is definitely a bad pump.
