I read with interes your earlier post about your Mom and Dad, and, your new responsibilities. It surely is a strange feeling when you are made privy to all of their affairs and, that you've been selected to handle all of the "situations," whatever they might be, that we all know will inevitably arrive.

After raising children and watching them make the journey to maturity, parents have a pretty keen sense of which one (or maybe several) of those kids is/are the right ones to handle the parents' affairs. As parents, it just goes with the territory.

My wife and I have four grown children but we know that "number three," our second youngest son is the right one to handle things for us when the time comes. Even though my wife and I are only in our very early 60's and hope to be around quite ahile longer, we have made "number three" aware of what we want him to do and he has agreed. So don't be surprised at your Dad"s choice; parents just "know" sometimes.

Yes, it's a responsibility; my wife was asked by both her aunt, and, her Mother, to manage their affairs. There is a lot of work, frustration and sadness involved in the but you will always be at peace with yourself, knowing that you did what your Dad asked of you.

I hope things go well for your Mom and Dad, and please give your brother Dan my regards.

Thanks Dave 2N. I have never heard it put that way before. I am the number 2 son and my folks picked me to handle their affairs. I am now just a little prouder that they chose me.
