The Last Thing In The World You WANT to Think About...

...Is probably the one thing you should. Possibly one of the most distasteful things to contemplate is death--especially your own. It's natural to not want to think about it, or what it will mean to those around you if you're gone. It's a good idea to think about it just long enough to be sure you have enough death insurance should something happen to you that your children and family won't have to be burdened with the debt of taking care of your bills, and burying you as well. The costs of funerals is astronomical. That's the biggest reason we got death insurance. I don't want either of my kids to have to pocket the enormous expense. Everyone worries about not having health insurance... that's a cost that will get THEM if something bad happens... but death insurance will get those closest to you. I know I don't like to think about death, but I hate thinking about that even more.

Think the cost of funerals is an enormous rip-off and a sick consumerism, with grieving families pressured by social expectations to "prove" their affection for the dead by the quality of the obsequities.

Absolutely agree with you on that one Bernita.
