Hello Deborah,

I apologize for not replying to your kind words last week - I have had several showings of the house scheduled, and trying to keep everything looking nice inside and out is taking up my time and energy. I also was approaching our anniversary of the day in '83 that I proposed, and my emotions were and are running high. Four days later on Sept. 1st my mother passed away, making this time of year associated with some powerful memories. Anyway, my health has improved over the years - thank you for asking. I'm reading today all the posts I have missed, and again feel blessed to be associated with such generous people who lift and help each other so lovingly. You certainly all do so for me!

I was also surprised at the costs. We are Catholic and there was a one day wake and church services so I guess that was the added cost. Fast forward - in June the pitiful insurance company finally sent the $10K check and just looking at it made me sick. In a moment of clarity, I heard very clearly, "Give it to the kids, they can use it" and that's just what I did. Such peace came over me and I believe my Jack spoke to me and that he is ok. P.S. The cemetery called me this week after four months of trying to get the flower urn for Jack's grave which I was told when I paid the cemetery was included and I had to end up paying $250 this week because I am too tired of swimming upstream. I live in Cleveland, OH. Thanks for listening. It really helps letting go of negativity.

I don't understand why the funeral home did that Joanne, the one I used just had to have me sign one on the policies over to them and then the insurance company paid them and then sent the rest to me, what a horrible way to do someone when they are hurting too bad to be able to take time to figure it out. When my 1st husband passed he didn't have insurance, thank God my uncle stepped in and paid for it, even then we were given an option on installments for 6 months which we didn't use but was a great option

Did the research for the U.S. to see if there was something similar to B.C. Memorial Funeral Services, but unfortunately as Mary.Jane said it's all about money.  Couldn't find a thing out there.  Sorry, wish I could have helped.

Ok, this is a post for us older daughter was at the San Francisco airport this morning..(on her way here YAAAAY) and she sent me a picture of a giant display of a VW bus, painted with flowers, and peace signs, commemorating The Summer of Love...back in 1967! Yes, kids, Bob and were Golden Gate Park,at a "LOVE IN" sitting on a blanket, listening to bands, dancing, sipping Annie Greensprings wine people passed out flowers to everyone.
That was 50 years ago...we were so innocent..we thought we would change the world, and all the hate and I remember, I think "wow, we were so naive" LOL
Ok, that,S it. Carry on.

Thanks to everyone.

Wow, that is wonderful. Too bad the U.S. Couldn,t do something like that. But, I am sorry to say, this country is having a love afair with $$$$$$$$, and greed seems to be the only thing running it. I am especially bothered by the way they charge college students...a lifetime of debt, for what, if it was a state run college, used to be basically free.
You could even go to places like Berkeley if you had the smarts to qualify. Not any more. We don,t take care of our poor or is a darn shame.
