Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
I visited a woman in the hospital this weekend. She had a heart attack and was unresponsive on arrival. The doctors didn’t know if she would make it. Here’s a note from her husband (I did their estate plan, back when I was in private practice):
“When you are laying in bed at 2:00 a.m and your mind is running the gerbil wheel of ‘what if she doesn’t wake up, would she want burial or cremation and what do I do with the ashes, keep them or scatter them, and what funeral home should I hire, and who is going to scan photos for the video but would she even want a memorial, and what are her friends’ phone numbers or maybe invite only family, and can we even have a memorial, what are the Covid rules and oh God, what if she doesn’t wake up?’ . . . it’s not as much fun as you might think. Spend some time talking to your family so they know the plan.”
What Joe said.
Within two months of the Garden Administration taking office, we’ve seen
military troops occupying the nation’s capitol; gas prices climbing
steeply; Covid deaths rising sharply; a massive surge in child smuggling
at the Mexican border; North Korea lobbing cruise missiles and China
launching simulated raids on the Theodore Roosevelt task force; plus two
highly publicized mass shootings.
81 Million Americans voted for this because they were offended by the
President’s tweets? We’re doomed.
