Death Certificates Floating in the Great Beyond

As you can imagine, all the stuff I had is no longer with me.  By stuff, I am referring to the elaborate files of death certificates, family histories and birth certificates we all keep somewhere.  As you can probably surmise, I kept mine in a filing cabinet in a lower drawer.

So when the letter arrived inquiring about my mother's status, I tossed it.  Surely......she has been gone a year and a half now.

This is the third letter, so I figured they really wanted to know.  Lo and behold! She had a policy that named me a beneficiary! Go figure.

Of course I will share with my brother.  Of course, after all, he did send me chocolate covered strawberries for Christmas!


  1. It's interesting how now is the time you find out, right when you could use a pick-me-up, no?

  2. I hope that it didn't affect you the way I am affected every time a strange letter arrives about my parents: I have a small panic attack. Every time. Ah, moving on: the happy news is that there's a little stash cash coming!


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
