Thank you all for the kind words, emails, and prayers

The dumpster fire known as October is finally over (although it spread its evil tendrils well into November):
  • Late September/early October- my wife and I are visited by Auntie Covid
  • Since August- father in law in hospice. On October 2, he takes a major turn for the worse while weíre in quarantine
  • October 4th- paroled from quarantine
  • October 6th- father in law passes away
  • October 7th thru 20- estate hell
  • October 21st- funeral for father in law on what would have been his 96th birthday
  • October 21st- redeye to Florida for big boat show
  • October 25th- father in law is buried. On her way home, wife is rear-ended and car is totaled
  • November 5th; a dear friend of ours (and long time acquaintance of my father in law) passed away
  • November 6th- our Aunt Gloria passed.

We are with family for Thanksgiving, and come back to 2 funerals on Monday.

I want to thank all who reached out to me during this trying time. An internet forum has shown itself to me and our family to be a worldwide community. I/we appreciate you all.

If I missed any questions regarding insurance, I apologize and will work as fast as I can to get back to you.

Again, our sincerest thanks.

Peter

I completely understand how you feel. Sorry for your losses. My mom passed away last Monday due to covid. She was 101.

When it rains, it pours. Here's hoping that your December is easier than your last couple of months have been. Good luck.

I am sorry for all you have gone through.

Per Covid, I hope they can identify the individual (s) responsible so we can kill them brutally. If they are dead, tell us where they are buried so we can dig them up and beat them severally and then kill them all over.
With all the developing variants, Covid, in one form or another, may be with us forever.
