It absolutely wasn’t easy when our father died.
Not only was it devastating to no longer have him in our life, although he didn’t leave anything for us kids.
All of us suddenly had to make the funeral arrangements and I really never realized how expensive funerals are. I didn’t want him to have a lousy casket, so I got what I could afford. It was a fantastic thing that between all of us kids, all of us could afford everything, although I had to dig into our savings. I was trying to save up for a new Heating and A/C method in our home, but those savings were blown after the funeral. It was a nice service, but it got myself and others thinking about our responsibilities. I realized that I didn’t want to leave our children in a tough situation without the finances to afford important things, and maybe they would want to get a new roof or update their Heating and A/C equipment. It would be nice for them to be able to do things love that without having to pay for our funeral arrangements, however so I decided to get life insurance that would supply them with more than enough currency for things that they might need at the time that I pass away from this earth. It’s not something that I look forward to or guess will happen anytime soon, but it’s fantastic to have peace of mind knowing our children will be alright. My father was a fantastic guy of course, although I wish he would have been prepared. Unluckyly, he didn’t expect to get sick and to deteriorate so suddenly. Nobody absolutely saw that coming so I absolutely cannot blame him for anything. He provided well for his family while he was alive.
