I bought life insurance for my son when he was in his 20s because he had 2 kids and a wife and a crappy job. He died in November of last year of a drug overdose at the age of 40. The life insurance is making it possible for the kids to go to college. So, I'm glad i got it. Did it make the loss of my son any easier? No. Two totally separate issues.
