Please, please, please accept my greatest, deepest apology for leaving you in the situation you’re finding yourself in. Had I known I was going to die when I untimely did, I would have given greater thought about your future journey but not being as smart as you and I thought we were I have left you on a road I think you thought you would never travel!
Here for your sake is what your challenges will be and no one will envy you for this list!
Trying to find a replacement for the income I brought into the family.
Trying to find medical coverage for that which you lost at my demise.
Paying for my funeral cost and it was expensive, right!
Trying to figure out how to raise our children without me there to help.
Trying to find a friend, relative, paid advisor to help you muddle through all I left you to deal with.
Trying to locate anything I left behind in order to live your lives as normal as you can – my pension plan, ira, 401k, 401b, monies I had in a bank I failed to tell you about, group life insurance we failed to discuss, my social security benefits to you, any veteran benefits, any fraternal benefits, anything you may be able to sue another on account of why my death happened so unexpectedly.
Looking for a replacement for me, the internet, church, your workplace. Please don’t haunt bars or such as you won’t find what you need in such places.
Give yourself some time to figure out what you’re going to do before you meet me in eternity.
Be good to yourself and our children plus my parents and siblings and your parents and siblings. Sometimes these folks will be your best friends in situations such as you finding yourself in.
You’re going to have to relearn how to live life alone for awhile so take one step at a time and in time things will eventually get back to where you can manage your journey!
Know I loved you the best way I knew how. Know I am sorry for what happened and know I am waiting for you to be with me once again!
