The Cost of Death For Families
This is a sponsored post with Jenny Life Insurance and
Sadly we have become very intimately knowledgable about the cost of death and dying for family members. In the last year I have lost my father and my husband just lost his father a week ago. We lost our grandparents with the same timing quite a few years ago – back to back. This year has been particularly difficult especially since my father in law has lived with us for the last 15 years. My children know no other life than that with meme in pepe in our home every single day.
The loss of my father was oh so difficult. Every girl adores her dad – they are the first men in their lives and no one will ever be as awesome as their dad and mine was no different.
But my kids were so fortunate to get to know and love my husband’s father – pepe. Unfortunately that experience and their close relationships have made his loss so incredibly hard for everyone.
When we are faced with the death of a close family member, there is so much stress. The emotions are overwhelming the sadness grips you and can completely incapacitate those that love them and have lost them. Then the planning begins – and that always means a great deal of money.
I can honestly tell you after going through the loss of these two great men – The cost benefit of a small monthly fee is so critical to save your family from years of potential finance stress.
