Hello Blackbird,
It is good to hear from you again, though I'm very sad to hear of your loss and grief. I've had a rotten year also, so far, and I understand that sense of disaster following disaster, and wondering what'll happen next. Your conclusions are so true --- love your loved ones every chance you get, as we never know when we might lose them. At least, though the sidenness of the loss is more painful for you to deal with, it sounds as though it may have been better for him, at least he was able to enjoy the rugby and look forward to more good games, without a longering illness.
And Oh, so right, about the paperwork. I remember handling my own father's estate, what a struggle it was, and the bank made so many mistakes I had to correct. years back, I wrote a book The Facts of Death, which specificially advised, with guidelines, how to draw together all the important paperwork in one's life, and how to organize it so as to make it easier for whoever had to tidy up after us. Brilliant advice, which I must take, myself, some day
