As usual I am playing cach up. I read the post from Pitch, oh how I have been there, and my heart goes out to you Pitch. I am now at the other end of the story. I now have to decided how to make" my going" as easy as I can for my kids. As my children, and grandchildren have grown older I have given them birthday gifts of things of mine that I think they would like to have.They know my wishes as to what to do at the end, but I have also stated that is up to them to do what they want, what to them will put their mind at ease. I don't worry about my children,they all agree, there is a spouse of one of them I do worry about. On the other hand, I think my kids will stomp him into the ground quick.I have done all the things the lawyers say you should do. I have a doc son-in-law that will see to my wishes. Each of them will have their battles to fight when the time comes. I have done what I think is for the best,and they know that. I can not ask for anything more.

Howdy ya'll I once read about a family that had grown children and on new years eve every year they would party where each grown child would get colored dots[available at walmart]The children would go about the house and place names in a bowl placed on or near the item[vases,dresser,hutches,chins,pictures]so on..the paremts would then asign the colored dots that went along with that grown child[bobby blue,karen yellow,sue red] so on....they would pull a name out of the bowl and whoevers name was pulled placed the colored sticker on the item somewhere it couldnt be seen...this was the way this family handled who got what after they passed fighting involved.....I have considered doing this myself this year.....seems like a good idea....Dale Anne

I thank everyone for there kind thoughts,prayers and comments.
I know that everyone goes through this "someday" but when it finally becomes that someday it is kind of like getting punched in the gut. God Bless you all.

Pitch, bless you. You are taking on a big responsibility. I watched my FIL go through what you are going through. He is the youngest of 5 siblings. When their father passed, he has a lot to do. He had a lot to do before he passed for that matter. Your dad sees something really special in you to give you this responsibility. I suspect success doesnt have anything to do with it, I sus[pect its your character and your morals. You are a really good soul. :)
