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!
