The person named in a will as executor shall not act as executor to any extent until
the will or an authenticated copy of the will is admitted to record, and he has executed
bond and taken oath in the court in which the record is made. He may, however, provide for the burial of the testator, pay the reasonable funeral
expenses, and take care of and preserve the estate.
