I'm sorry I can't respond about the death - I can't read about it. The funeral would be difficult for S. I wonder if you can plan a day where all the kids can get together and talk about the girl and send flowers into the river like you mentioned. That way they can say goodbye without having to be around all the scary grief that is going to be happening at the funeral. Can you talk to the teacher or the other parents and see if they would be interested in that?
I need some advice: Some of you may remember a couple of times that I had breathing problems. I went to the dr. and there was nothing wrong with my heart of lungs, etc. Long story short, I have been denied supplemental life insurance because of my breathing problems with unknown etiology. The insurance is not a big deal, but now I am wondering what I should do about the denial. I am worried that this one denial over something that doesn't exist (perhaps stress-related?) will cause other insurance companies to deny me for things that matter. Am I correct in thinking that this one denial will go into my records so other insurance companies will see it as a red flag and be more likely to deny me coverage? My mom is of the opinion that this is so, but to try to fight the denial will only cause more paperwork which will only add weight to the matter and make it more of a thing than it already is. I don't know what the correct thing to do is.
