    Any sympathy?

    http://money.cnn.com/2014/07/28/pf/p...html?hpt=hp_t2

    Other than the obvious sympathy for the loss of a family member (especially outliving a child) do you have any sympathy on the money side.

    My thoughts...

    First, he makes 75k and his wife also works. Many, many people with 3 kids do just fine on much, much lower income.

    Second, he cosigned.

    Why even have terms on loans anymore if they are expected to just be thrown out?

    Sympathy, sure ... that is a terrible situation. But as you said ... he cosigned for the loans.

    What was the degree in? How did she not have a life insurance plan when she had 3 kids? Was the degree in drinking, she did die of liver failure after all.

    The state tends to expand in proportion to its means of existence and to live beyond its means, and these are, in the last analysis, nothing but the substance of the people. Woe to the people that cannot limit the sphere of action of the state! Freedom, private enterprise, wealth, happiness, independence, personal dignity, all vanish. - Frederic Bastiat

    Life insurance is overated and overpriced. We need some sort of Affordable Life Insurance Act to take care of problems like this.

    He wouldn't have responded at all. Some have nothing to add until it comes time to do some bashing.

    Maybe she was uninsurable on account of liver disease?

    More people die of cirrhosis NOT related to alcohol than related to alcohol.

    Thank you. I must have read over that part. I saw the amount but the degree didnt register.
