You *ee, *hc knows about wive* who suffered lingering illnesses, and incurred big
medical, and hospital, and other bills, and then were taken away. She knows what a
struggle the husbands had trying to hold the family together and carry on, because
they had no ready cash to pay those bills. She knows about them having to go in
debt, and how many, many months it took some of them to get "back on their feet"
financially. And since Mother wants Dad to be able to carry on, and to give her little
"first lady” all the things they've planned together to give her. Mother has a South-
western Life Insurance policy on her own life that will give Dad the cash he’d need
in such an emergency.
