I think I got a bit giddy thinking of all the possibilities that opened up for us that have been shut down just as quickly since. It was so nice to be able to see the option to work from home, som ..read more

Will they even be able to afford a funeral for you?   Paying for your own funeral can prevent your loved ones from having to take on the financial burden.
