Have You Ever Felt Helpless? Posted by David West , 28/10/2015

Have You Ever Felt Helpless?

Have You Ever Felt Helpless?

Have you ever felt helpless or lost for words when speaking to someone who’s been recently bereaved?  Have you ever longed to alleviate someone’s pain or at the very least help someone to prevent adding to it?

I once had to watch a friend struggle for his life in a fierce undertow on a secluded beach. Although he was only 10 yards away, he was a stronger swimmer than I and we both knew I could not venture into the surf without risking both our lives.

I wish there had been a lifeline to throw him.

As luck would have it a huge wave broke above him with enough force to counter the undertow and bundle him onto the sand.

If you come across someone who has lost a loved one the level of stress can be immense. This stress often affects sleep patterns and impairs judgment. Someone who may normally be highly organised and competent can find even the most simple task daunting. They may put on a brave face but deep down they are suffering and who wouldn’t want to help them avoid further levels of stress?

Unfortunately, because of poor advice and poor decision making, people will either try to administer a loved one’s estate themselves or instruct someone poorly trained to do so, often with expensive and stressful results.

Fortunately you can help these bereaved people; you can refer them with confidence to The Probate Bureau. There is no finer company than The Probate Bureau to empathetically administer an estate efficiently and professionally with no added stress. It is what we are renowned for.

You just can’t put a price on peace of mind.
