Talk About Death
We all would like to think we are going to live forever. Well, odds are against it.
I write this hub in the hopes you will never have to face what I have through the death of a loved one. It is a taboo subject in many households and when death happens, the family has more problems with finances, estates, and bills.
Jonda and I never discussed it, even knowing we would both die one of these days. Because of her health, life insurance was impossible to get. I guess we just figured we would die together and we wouldn't have the worries. Here I now sit contemplating bankruptcy.
These are just a few suggestions for you and your loved ones to discuss. Don't let death destroy a whole family. I doubt the person who passed on would want it that way.

Insurance is a necessary evil. If you can, get life insurance on all family members, or at least burial insurance.
The cost of funerals and caskets and such is high. You don't want to pay for years to bury a loved one. Even the cost of cremation isn't cheap.
It's a difficult conversation, but talk about insurance. It just makes good sense.
So you owe some major bills and you die. No will, so these places can go after property and possessions. That wouldn't help your family one bit.
Do yourself a favor; no matter how much or little you have make out a living will. Your family will appreciate it.

What specifics do you want from your spouse/loved one if you die? The other way around?
Communicate, talk to your partner. It's hard but worthwhile.
I wish I knew how my wife felt about how I am doing now. I wish I knew if dating was ok after she was gone.
There is so much I wish we would have discussed, but we didn't. Talk about these things and in the long run you will be happy you did.
Always Time For Affection
When I was 18 I wish I knew just how short life really is.
Jonda would have had roses weekly, I love you's daily and hugs every chance I could get.
There is always time for love and affection;kisses and hugs. You are fooling yourself if you think there isn't.
Take all of this from a guy who didn't follow these simple rules, I really wish I did.
Talk about death, life depends on it!
