I was talking to my mom a few minutes ago . she's not having a good day. She just went to my brother's grave today. Anyway we got on the subject of Life Insurance. My half-sister is having a fit right now. Because her brother-in-law died. They're asking for contributions to was the funeral. She feels she should have to contribute to the funeral. So that got me and my mom to talk it. I told her I would prefer to pay off my funeral. Rather than get life insurance that may not ever come to fruition My mom said she pays her life insurance before she pays anything else. Because she would never want her children to struggle to pay for her burial.

I did have life insurance but my mom cashed it out to move so now I have to get life insurance once I can afford it.

@sharon6345 that is a shame.. when my daddy passed he didn't have life insurance so we had to pay for it out of pocket.

Life insurance is like gambling. YOU are betting you're gonna die. The insurance company bets you're gonna live. Yet, we hope that they win the bet!

it's just crazy NOT to have life ins rather you want to pay it off BEFORE your time or not we never KNOW when our time is up in life.
