How we gather (and how to interpret) our data

Most people need help making funeral arrangements. Obvious sources of help are family, friends, members of the clergy, and hospital social workers. But specialized organizations can help as well.

Planning for what happens to your possessions and money after you die requires making many decisions. Here are some basic dos and definite don’ts that will save you hassles and money—and avoid common mistakes.

To help your heirs unravel your finances, maintain a list of your major assets and accounts and where they can find your end-of-life documents. We've gathered a list of what to include.

Unless your situation is very straightforward, have your will prepared by an experienced lawyer, and hire a financial planner or estate attorney to organize your finances.

Skilled florists can interpret your tastes (or those of the recipient), determine what’s appropriate for the occasion, and then create a work of art that fits those needs. Our ratings of florists for quality and price should help you pick the best.

If you want delivery, exotic flowers, or need advice, your best bet is a florist. But if you’re willing to pick up the posies yourself and want to save a lot of money, you have several other options.

When you need to send flowers to someone outside the area, what do you do? We review the options, and advise you on how to deal with each to ensure you and your special someone on the other end are happy with the results.
