Retiring and Family Issues
Tuesday, March 27, 2012
My decision to retire took a long time coming. I did start the paperwork in December.
It will be a long process as I am filing for disability that takes six months. I had to go to Social Security. I finally got a check last week while visiting my brother in Florida.
It was part of the process to go to SS. I am getting the money that will help our family. I was able to help my brother by buying some groceries for his family. Gary has cancer. He is still able to drive and cook for his family. His wife works two jobs with a schedule that makes her always tired. She has such a pleasant personality. Was so happy to see that Gary has such a good family.
Our family was so dysfunctional growing up. Knowing that Gary and Paul had good supportive wives in their home life, makes me happy.
Cancer has worked it's way into our family life. My mom, my sister in law and brother will end their days sick with cancer. This is so very sad. I do not want to lose these people. I feel blessed to have known them.
