I love this obituary. Do we all know an elder who sees “help” as a four-letter word? Why? Because as soon as you accept the “help” you lose your independence. You lose your ability to take care of yourself because now, the State does it for you. They take away your privacy. They take all your rights. They even take the one thing you have, your home….And of course, they take ALL YOUR MONEY. And even your kids’ money. This elder person, who lived to be 100, apparently was well aware of the facts.
I hope the link works. You have to subscribe to get the stories from the PG, but they allow you to read a few.
