Family: It’s best to prepare for the worst

By The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

This article was published February 11, 2014 at 11:00 a.m.

Here’s something cheery to contemplate. Suppose tomorrow you’re hit by a bus/18-wheeler/SUV/exceptionally large bicycle. And die.

Are your affairs in order?

It’s still early enough in the new year to add a resolution, so you might as well go straight to the top. Yes, you probably need to exercise more. Yes, you probably could eat better.

But what do you really, really need to do, ahead of anything else?

You need to prepare for your death.

You need a will (probably), you need advanced health-care directives if you end up in the hospital, you need to leave your loved ones a list of instructions. See Wednesday’s Arkansas Democrat-Gazette for suggestions on getting your affairs in order.
