    These are all great reasons to have life insurance and I am so glad that my hubby has some. But I think it is awful that due to my health, I cannot get any. I think one important thing that life insurance covers is the cost of burial. I never realized just how much it costs! I don't want that burden to be on my son, so at least we have that already taken care of. Life insurance is a must I believe ~ especially for parents!
