Just in case you thought I was lying when I posted this, here’s moms latest “In Case I Die” email. What can I say, she’s got a wicked sense of humor and she loves her some Architecture in Helsinki.

RE: To My Most Precious In Case I Die
TO: [redacted];[redacted]

Hi, kids. Here’s the deal –

Life Insurance policy is in my office – Call Bob XXXXXXXXX @ (XXX) XXX-XXXX Policy # XXXXXXXXXX

Morgan Stanley – all accounts are in my office.

I did make out a will which is in a manila envelope on top of the microwave in the kitchen. It doesn’t say much, but it’s there.

Just in case something happens, there is grandma’s ring in a ring box, inside a plastic box, underneath my sink in the bathroom. Also there are two pocket watches that belonged to Gramps in the 2nd drawer in some pouches in the bathroom. There is grandma’s silver in the kitchen and a big punch bowl with cups in the cabinet behind the kitchen table. Everything else in worth shit! But what great memories you will have – and all those pictures!

I love you guys so, so much and I am so proud of you.

love, mom

ED: You gotta fuckin’ love that broad. And yes that’s her laughing at Jay Leno to his face.

    That’s awesome. Both of my parents (divorced) do that to me too. My mom has a “In case I die” file and my dad always hands me a sealed envelope whenever he travels outside of the country.

    Damn, you’re lucky.

    My grandma does the same thing, but it’s usually to the tune of:

    “So, I’m leaving each and everyone of you 10 dollars in an envelope on my desk, in case something happens. But, one of you will get $100, just to start a fight.”

    We all love her dearly.

    i love that. what precipitated it? my parents have been travelling recently and last spring asked me to be executor of the will and signator on the safety deposit boxes. it actually hit home a little, knowing i may have to be the big kid. just as they left for the airport for a month long trip through china and tibet, my mom pulled me aside and said jokingly – remember, DNR! DNR? Do Not Ressucitate!

    it stuck with me all day.
