try chewing on this one, my friends: old ironsides placed the bulk of her assets, well over a million dollars, into annuities that ended at her death. that’s right, she preferred to stiff her two sons as a swan song to a life of inordinate self centeredness. meanwhile, her funeral was a reenactment of imitation of life, with a prepaid extravaganza to the tune of many thousands, featuring an ornate coffin with a profuse floral display upon it.
my heart breaks for my husband, who has been a loyal, loving son, no matter how difficult his mother was towards him. and there’s nothing funny about that, i’m sorry to say.
