She told about the importance of carrying life insurance. I would like to lei! your readers how important it is to have life insurance for the entire family. I tost my newborn baby after 10 days and many complications. He was bom three months premature. It had never occurred to us to buy cemetery plots. In order 10 bury our son in a place where we all eventually would be buried, we had to buy all the plots in advance. We also have two young daughters and bought plots for them as well, in case some ftombte tragedy should be fall'them before they marry. That meant uc had 10 buy five plots, which ciKicd up costing us $.1,300.'which had to be paid for before my son's funeral. We had lo ukc out a loan for the co-u of the funeral, but I thought my life insurance from work would help us pay for thai. I was wrong. For the pas* 10 years. 1 thought my family was covered under my work policy bui lhai wasn't the case. Tell your readers to make sure their life insurance policy covers not only them but their families as welt.
