Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dumpster

In the last year on our road into town in rural Vermont, we have seen the personal effects of 3 people who have recently died packed into dumpsters at the side of the road. In one case the family had a tag sale and sold all the valuable stuff (her crystal collection) and tossed the rest in the dumpster. For some reason this creeps me out big time and I don't want it to happen to me. Are there best practices for disposing of the personal effects of family members?How did your family dispose of the stuff of the deceased that you didn't want? Yes.... I know about a will and have one.

"We're giving it all to them, but don't worry, they have your best interests at heart!"

My aged parents are planning to cash in all their stocks and put them into an account in my two brothers' names to reduce the amount of money payable in fees to the government upon their demise. They have told me, more or less, not to worry, and not to doubt the good intentions of my siblings. How to respond to this? [more inside]

How do I find good homes for a lifetime of my father's work?

My father passed away last year and left me as the executor of his will. It was simple, all things considered, as my brother and I split everything 50/50. The riddle that we're having trouble with, and will continue to be complicated long into the future, is that we are now the owners of a lifetime of his artwork. [more inside]
