The absolute least that I think everyone should do is to have it be known to a least one person,if not two how you would like your funeral, ect, if only just the basics if indeed something did happen.. doesnt have to be PC,we could get killed or die at any time of many different things. It was such a comfort to me to know how my Willie wanted his funeral, he didnt care where it was at,but I knew HOW he wanted it. We discussed this for the first time in 1994 when my father died, then I refreshed upon it when he got the diagnosis in 2001,it wasnt a depressing conversation and we didnt dwell on it,just was something that needed to be out of the way and once it was, there wasnt a need to bring it up again..
As for getting things in order, well I dont know. I suppose its not a bad idea to keep important papers together, insurance papers and deeds to property ect need to always be known where they are..perhaps kept together and so forth..Im not sure exactly what all exactly there is that can be done as far as papers like that go..
