You will need to be detached in order to do the things that need to be done when a loved one dies. It’ll be easier when you’re prepared with a checklist before they leave. Here are some of the things my siblings and I had to prepare when our parents passed away in 2011 and this year:

OK, this is a bit late for a Christmas gift idea post, but this morning as I was charging my Braun Series 7 Shaver, I tried to recall when it was that mrbrown and myself received these Uncle Gifts from Braun’s then PR company. It was April 2008. That’s almost 8 years ago, and we’re both still using the damned thing. It’s probably also lasted longer than the PR company that represented Braun then. So if you’re looking for some appliance that lasts, this is one of them. The model we have – Braun Series 7 (790 cc Type 5671) has been discontinued, but you can find the new Series 7s here. Thank goodness the refills for the cleaning liquid and blades are still compatible. You can read the original review here. Tweet
