""The Handbook to Wills, Funerals, and Probate, Third Edition"" simplifies this topic - clearly and concisely explaining wills and how they function, probate and death taxes, making funeral arrangements, and settling and closing an estate. With laws constantly changing, this guide - a thoroughly updated and revised edition of ""A Family Guide to Wills, Funerals, and Probate"" - covers the latest rules and procedures.
