Good day Coach, I am a 64-year- old man who has just lost a partner. My partner, unmarried, had suffered a lot, enduring an incurable disease of cancer. It has been the toughest four years of my life since I was living in the hospital all the time during her admissions.

I have never ill-treated the child in any manner but has always perceived her as my own. Ever since the sickness overtook their mother, I tried all I possibly could to unite with her family so that they are all aligned with what was going on. I dug all I could and eventually found her brother, the uncle to her children, and we started looking after the sister together very well. As a couple, my partner and I decided to solicit funeral insurance covers so that in the event one of us passes on, we do not struggle nor become anyone’s burden. My partner stopped working about four years ago and did not have any source of income to even pay her premiums but it became my duty and priority. As unmarried as we were, she had to have her own while I had mine, both running parallel.

Over and above that, we both accumulated household goods; the furniture and other stuff and I admit, she purchased the house we lived in and it was in her names. Unfortunately, she succumbed to death and I expected full cooperation from her family but I never tasted any of it.
