Adam is a graduate student at UC Berkeley who is a San Diego native. His girlfriend’s father just recently passed away, and they had some problems after his death. In their case, the legal aspects of having a will was taken care of but it was all the little bits of information that only her dad knew which were problematic. Small things such as how to take care of the garden, what to feed the dog, and how to deal with the maid was surprisingly difficult and would have been helpful if her dad had left a note behind.
Another pain point for the couple was the planning of the memorial. They had to choose the songs and services for her father and thought that it would had been much easier if her father had specified wishes.
