You Might Not Have Tomorrow

| September 04, 2017

In 2013, my dad lost his battle with cancer.  Throughout the years, my dad and I always talked about his finances and such.  He had also mentioned to me that he no longer had a life insurance policy, something he had let go of when he had retired.  He had always told me that one day soon he would write down everything I needed to know such as his wishes, investments, where to go and what to do.  

Well, unfortunatley he never got around to it.  So my brother, sister and I had to go on a scavenger hunt and go by what we "thought" would be his wishes.  Much to our surprise, he did have a small life insurance policy in place that at least paid for the funeral.  What a blessing!

I know my dad had every intention in taking care of his affairs and writing that letter, but time ran out before he accomplished that task.  If I learned anything from that moment in life, it's that a life insurance policy, no matter the dollar amount, can help your loved ones.  Secondly, don't wait until tomorrow to prepare a plan to ensure your final wishes. You might not have tomorrow.
