that it's a myth that insurance companies don't pay if there is a suicide. I started looking around and saw that many policies to pay, but only if a year or two have passed before the act.

in most jurisdictions, there's a two-year waiting period for suicide.

Anyway, there's a better system coming:

Isaiah 65: And they will certainly build houses and have occupancy; and they will certainly plant vineyards and eat [their] fruitage. They will not build and someone else have occupancy; they will not plant and someone else do the eating. For like the days of a tree will the days of my people be; and the work of their own hands my chosen ones will use to the full. They will not toil for nothing, nor will they bring to birth for disturbance; because they are the offspring made up of the blessed ones of Jehovah, and their descendants with them. And it will actually occur that before they call out I myself shall answer; while they are yet speaking, I myself shall hear.

?The wolf and the lamb themselves will feed as one, and the lion will eat straw just like the bull; and as for the serpent, his food will be dust. They will do no harm nor cause any ruin in all my holy mountain,? Jehovah has said.

A man's (or woman's) home is can be more than

...... his/her castle.

Right now there is a move afoot to develop what is basicaly a new city on the last undeveloped land in this county. Public hearings began last night, and one of the "against" was a 90 year-old gentleman who was raised on the family land and still farmed it, as is father and ancestors had before him. Now, this old man probably doesn't have much longer on God's green earth but his heirs do, and they don't want to sell. Bt we all know that when there are developers around with promises of this and that, soon the againsters are outnumbered by the supporters.

Given their druthers,, most folks say they old choose to be cared for in their own homes rather than a nursing home. and, yes, even die there. In some areas the older practice of the deceased being viewed and the wake held in the home is being revived.

I know that in today;s mobile society the "old homestead" is not, except for 90 year-olds, as it once was for most people. But the feeling can be the same for any "four walls" that have welcomed and embraced us and felt "like home".

To lose that home must be devastating!!!

..... could do about the developers.

Sometimes a spouse dies. (A wife 35 years old left with 2 children and $250,000 of insurance and her $40,000/yr job is going to have a hard time of it unless he had mortgage insurance). Sometimes there can be catastrophic health care costs.

In the man's case...

In the man's case, it wasn't a case of a mortgage. The story said "Mr Phyall rented the property from Atlantic Housing Ltd.".
