We moved nine times in two years. That is what losing two people we loved caused~ total chaos.
We had to act fast after losing both my father and husband 63 days apart in 2014. Closing down a business, legal affairs, credit card companies calling, we were living in a mess. After quickly learning I was going to need help closing two estates, I realized after searching through the internet and making multiple phone calls, there was really no one who could help me. I had to create a team approach and found myself juggling many balls in the air at the same time. It was overwhelming and stressful. After 840 days, I was finally able to close my husband’s estate and was ready to put into motion my dream of starting a company to help families become organized and prepared ahead of time. I don’t want anyone to have to look aimlessly for the answers after losing their loved one.
Loss of Life Advocates, also known as Lola, (and named after my mother who died in 1999) has been created to help families prepare for the final transition of life as well as after the loss, because we know the work of closing down a loved one’s life can be overwhelming. We guide families through initiating the conversation, gathering all important documentation, and assisting with referrals and resources. My ultimate wish is for families to begin accumulating their information so that when an untimely event does occur, everything is securely organized and accessible for their loved ones.
