I went to the Social Security office today and learned that since my Social Security check is more than Marshall's, I do not get any survivor benefits. His check is now discontinued and I will continue to get mine. And that's that.
However, I do get a one-time payment of $255 and I will fill out the application for that payment as soon as I get the death certificate.
So I am making progress ...
Last night we had one heck of a storm and our road almost washed out in one spot. It is very close to being impassable, very scary. Marshall always knew what to do in these situations and who to call so I am kind of floundering. I miss him in so many ways.
