Yes! so nice to read this update......you know this is really something at least in my book. I recall her posts asking about Tennessee and a few other states and at times it didn't seem like things would come together.........and now here she is --------The Relocating Queen.
Wishing her happiness always and thanking you deelighted . Such great support. so so so exciting!

Saw a very good movie today, called All Saints, about a church. One of our local Phoenix theater chains is charging $5.00 for tickets Sat-Mon., in honor of the 84th anniversary of the chain. It is still too hot here to want to spend much time outside.

We also watched The American Experience show about Walt Disney, 1900-1941, which is Part 1. It is showing on PBS this weekend and Hubby & I enjoyed it. Part 2 will be shown the weekend of Sept 14-15. This show should be repeated several times, and was quite interesting.

Default Final expenses

Just out of curiosity, how many of you that are "up-in-years", have already taken care of the details for your funeral, paid for your funeral and the
associated expenses?
I realize that there are a variety of reasons that one would choose to do this.

We haven't done that yet, personally, but have a friend who has done that - he has made all arrangements with The Neptune Society. I have personally buried 5 family members through the same funeral home in Sun City, AZ., all simple cremations with no additional, paid "service" or "wake". Two family members had pre-purchased Columbarium spots at their church. Fortunately, all the relatives made sure there was cash available in the checking accounts and that there was access to the accounts to pay for the expense and all their regular bills. Everyone I have reference is/was of the Christian religion; they just chose simple burial choices.

Nope. The state can bury me in an unmarked grave or chop me up for experiments. No family to care anyway.

American Experience is one of my favorite series on PBS. I also saw the first part of the Walt Disney episode and enjoyed it. Looking forward to Part 2.
