One of my coworkers died this morning on her way to work. Details are sketchy, but Minnesota got another dusting of snow (dusting? Who am I kidding – the skies opened up and we got dumped on) and this person was killed in a car crash.
Luckily, she elected to take advantage of the life insurance offered by our company and she opted to take the largest policy offered to our employees – so that’s money her family will see sooner rather than later. But now I’m sitting here thinking to myself – how much did I elect to take out on my life? Is all of my paperwork in order in case the worst possible happened?
I didn’t know this employee personally, but her death makes me realize my own mortality. Regardless – there’s a family that’s heartbroken this afternoon and children who will grow up without their mom. Please keep my co-worker’s family in your thoughts and prayers.
