About Me is a comprehensive guide and workbook to help you organize everything a loved one will need in the eventuality of your passing. While About Me may not answer the question, “Why was my loved one taken from me?” it definitively answers the question, “What do I do now?”

The passing of a loved one can be difficult emotionally, mentally, and physically. About Me is designed to organize and simplify the wishes of the decedent for their family and friends in a way that can lessen the distress they may be feeling. With this book, trusted loved ones who are left behind will know what to do, who to contact, where to go, and the proper next steps when a person dies. About Me is beautifully designed, with pockets for important documents, plenty of space to write, and clear instructions. It is also an essential legal tool for anyone becoming the executor of an estate, including legal definitions, helpful online resources and reference books, and probate laws, codes, and statutes for each state. Ask yourself this question: When you pass, will your loved ones know precisely what to do, in what order, and with the level of detail that makes it less likely that something or some asset gets missed? If your answer is no, then About Me is for you.
