By ELIZABETH CHRISTIAN
A longtime Covenant Presbyterian member—who wants to stay anonymous—recently wrote a love letter to his wife. This note was not hearts and flowers, it was not sentimental language, but it spoke “I love you” louder than anything imaginable.
The letter was a list of things his wife should do if the husband dies first. Not an easy conversation, but one we all should consider having. With the author’s permission, I share his checklist below. I’ve left blanks where you may want to fill in information. None of these will offer enough space, so you might create your own document and fill these in appropriately.
THINGS TO DO SHOULD I PREDECEASE YOU
We hope you find this helpful. If you do, cut it out and talk it through with your loved ones. Read every word how it’s meant to be read—infused with love.
