Having the support of someone who has been through estate disposal before, and who has been an executor can be helpful in ways you would never imagine. Be sure you have a number of sounding board (people) and physical help. You will make better decisions when you are not emotionally, and physically, compromised. Home Suite Home Transitions staff have been there and are happy to help.
TIP: Settling an estate is a job unto itself. Don't go it alone. Get as much support as you can.
