Did it cause financial problems for you when he died?

Again, not that I noticed, and I don't know why unless he really, provided. He must have just really provided for us. Because we didn't notice he had a lot of insurance policies. And he'd put a lot of effort into making sure that things were ... OK. And so we didn't really notice as children we didn't notice a difference ... in our standard of life at all. In fact my mother was here recently I meant to ask her how did she do it because she wasn't working. And for at least a year after he died she didn't do anything. She just sat at home and wore black. And ... didn't drive, didn't go out visiting, and she came to my confirmation service, and left as soon as it finished and didn't go to the reception and went back home but otherwise she just stayed at home. I remember 'cause she'd buy, her clothes would wear out her black clothes and she'd buy more black clothes. I think she started driving two years after ... afterwards.
