I never thought i be using sites like this myself to raise money. But with BOTH parents having strokes in less than 5 months time really made things all too real and Urgent. And with doctors saying they may have a repeat of it, thoughts of their deaths just sit in the back of your head.
Dad had it the worst, he's now bedridden at a nursing home. The food there is actually worse than airplane food, and the staff 'performance' tells you they want to be elsewhere instead!
Mom is home and cared for by a nice and cool caregiver, but taking about 13 kinds of medications and endless going back and forth between this doctor and that is taking a toll on her i got to admit.
So I forced myself to lately visit a few funeral homes to plan for that unavoidable day, and the prices were worse than death itself. While the cost of actual funeral itself is acceptable, it's the burial plot cost that is heart-stopping.
So here i am making this page before my parents' time, so that when the day comes I'll be able to calmly give them a reasonable sendoff.
I humbly thank you all, and do advise you to spend more time with family and enjoy life doing things you actually like. Work things off your bucket list and add things from time to time. Life is short, make things count!
