If it feels right, consider establishing on ongoing memorial fund in the name of your loved one.

• Was there a cause dear to your loved one?

• Would you like to donate to research for a disease affecting your loved one?

• Was your loved one affiliated with a church or another organization, such as a hospice or hospital, which provided invaluable support to your family?

Talk to your family and friends to see what ideas they may have for a possible memorial fund. Visit with your local bank to set up the memorial fund, or have a trusted friend coordinate the process. Once the fund is set up, you or others can contribute at any time.
