I am back. The funeral was Friday. It was just a graveside service. I have a bit of advice for everyone. If you want a nice funeral, get a $10,000 life insurance policy. My dad had a $5,000 policy and he got a semi nice funeral.

There was one problem. He wanted to be creamated. My Aunt decided that he would be buried instead. I was to get what was left from the life insurance. The creamation was to be $1,400. She spent the entire $5,000. For $5,000 he got a casket, transport to funeral home, kept on ice until funeral, transport to cemetary, opening and closing of the grave, obit in paper, mementos of funeral, the clergy, and a head stone. they threw in a guest book for free.

Well I shouldn't complain. He was laid to rest.

Guess what else? I got all of his belongings out of his apartment. It took me three days. I finished up on the first of this month. I turned in the key and found out the owners of the apartments want to charge me another month's rent. Why? They said it was because my dad didn't give them a 30 day notice.

Can you say F-ed up?

My Aunt called legal aid and I have a lawyer and it won't cost me anything. I am going to take them to small claims court. The lawyer said what they were doing was illegal.

Well that's all for now.
