"One of the most common sources of difficulty for a widow and her family is not being able to find the husband's legal papers - his will, insurance policies, social security card, army discharge papers, deed to house, deed to cemetery property, etc. Be sure your wife, or some member of the family, knows where you keep these papers. If you change the place, tell someone about it. If the place is a safety deposit box at the bank, be sure someone at home knows where you keep the key. Fill out the bank form giving somebody "right of access" to your box in case of death."
