Besides physical security, I also lost my sense of financial security after Reg passed away. He was the main breadwinner and paid for all the big bills, including the mortgage, cell phones, internet, satellite television, electricity and heat, and water. Now, I’m responsible for all those bills. Reg was a software developer and according to many people who worked with him at different companies, he was the best software developer they had ever worked with. He was the guy his coworkers turned to when they needed help and couldn’t solve an issue on their own. Even when the tumors invaded his spine and he was highly drugged up with pain medications, he was still smart enough to solve an issue that the rest of his department was frantically working on and couldn’t solve together. Therefore, his company wanted to keep him. I never worried about his getting laid off, even in economic downturns.
