I’ve laughed out loud with your story. Thanks for sharing! The funny thing is that I’ve lived both sides of the story. What?? Yes.
My parents died in 2000, when I was 23, because of different illnesses. I’m an only child, so I had to deal with all kind of problems with banks and companies.
And, I had a heart attack 5 years ago, electrical resuscitation included, so the other part also sounds familiar to me.
I’m not going to say “I’m so sorry for your loss” because… 15 years! I’ve been 15 years explaining to people when asking/saying something about my parents that they died etc “oh, so sorry..”, “don’t worry”… it’s a whole long and unbearable mantra. ;)
So, good luck! Hope you don’t have to repeat it for so many years! ;)
