I got a phone call early this morning. You know one of the calls that you know is bad news before you pick up the phone. It was my brother. His wife died suddenly last night of an apparent heart attack. Just 61 years old. That's not how I envisioned our day to start to say the least.
It's given me much to think about. They live out of country so right now there isn't much I can do until I know what the plans are. This was so out of left field, no one saw this coming. What would I do if this happened to me? How would I be financially speaking after the dust settles. After insurance claims are paid? How would I survive?
I read a lot of survival blogs but those don't really deal with death?
Do you have a will? Who are the beneficiaries on your life insurance plans? If you a person of faith do you know what kind of service you want? I know none of us enjoy thinking about this but it really needs to be done. Being PREPARED will save everyone time and worry. My brother is so turned upside down right now. Nothing makes sense to him. Plans are not final yet.
I've got so much junk just lying around. I've got to purge. I would not want anyone to have to clean it up.
Do any of you have experience with this?
