I mentioned this on another post, and i wish a lot of you would think about it-and make preperations, if it does indeed happen. my brother went to hospital for routine knee surgery- and his heart stopped about 15 hours later. he was dead 17 minutes.my SIL has him hooked to life support, because she says she just cant make it without his money! background, they've been married 50+ years, he was in the service, and provided well for both her and their children. he has a nice pension plan, they have no bills-but she has several children in their 50's that have never worked--just lived off daddy.married, and unmarried. you cant imagine the feelings my sis and i are having, while she keeps his body going. but--even if you dont reply to this--think, plan and prepare for the time you may have to make it without the money you're used to having- in the blink of a eye-life can change.
