I was reading Donna's journal, My Country Life and she was talking about what they are going to do if one of them dies. I think it is a good subject to talk about at any age. You never know when death will happen. You have to do this or the other is left clueless. You need a will even if you have no children. Are there any insurance policies? Are the beneficiaries current? Do you know where the policies are? What about the bills? Write down who gets paid what and when. Keep that list current. Do you pay bills online? Make a list of the web site addresses, username and passwords. Do not store it on the computer! Put it with the policies. Keep that list current. You need marriage certificates, birth certificates, certified copies of both. You also need divorce papers if there has been a divorce. Also social security cards are needed. Make your wishes known if you want to be cremated or not. Make a will. Don't leave it up to the kids to decide how to split anything. Even in the best of families death causes somebody's brain to malfunction. pat and I realized that when I die he does not have to money to take care of my death. We took out a policy on me for that purpose just this week.
I know this...life will suck if he dies first because I really do not want to be without him. I can pay the bills, fix the toliet and all that stuff. I can't hold myself at night. I can't do the wiggle dance alone(not talking about). I know I will just crawl back inside of myself and I don't know if I will be able to make it out again.
