I am not sure, but I don't think any of his Insurance companies have to pay if he committed suicide. The Insurance companies who covered the additional homes that caught fire will have to pay, but they will sue the Arsonists estate. What a sad, sad situation.

Someone said the man has a son. I hope that is not true. What possible reason would he have for leaving such a sorted legacy?

"So I said to the Lord, "you promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. But I have noticed that during the most trying times in my life there have only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you the most, you have not been there for me?"

The Lord replied, "The times when you hve seen only one set of footprints, is when I carried you." Mary Stevenson.

Please let him rest in peace and go do something good for yourself and those around you. Cherish every day as you do not know what fate lies ahead for any one of you. This has gone on too long and too many hateful and unfouded things have been said. He was not alone in this responsibility. The family needs to heal.
