My loved one’s will makes me Personal Representative, do I just handle everything?

Well, almost.  The Will names you as Personal Representative, but it takes more than that.  A Personal Representative (sometimes called “executor”) is a person appointed by a Court to administer an estate.   The Deceased nominated you in the Will.  But you don’t actually become the P.R. until the Court appoints you.  Don’t worry, the Court almost always appoints the person nominated in the Will.
