The Value of Economics in Everyday Life
It was the strangest thing. It all began on the evening of June 15th
2008. My grandmother passed away. This was weird because no
body even knew she was dying. Well maybe it was just her time to go.
It was a very rough couple of days. My sisters, my mother and I set up
the calling hours for her wake, and the time and place for her funeral. It
was vary hard to concentrate on these tasks when one of our loved
ones had passed away.
About two weeks had passed and things were begging to return
to normal. It had been a tremendous loss for our family, but we all
knew that we had to get on with our lives.
I recall a message that was left on my mother’s answering
machine reporting that my grandmother had written a will. It was
discovered when all of her things were being cleaned out of her home.
Not a single soul within my grandmother’s family knew about this will,
so it was a big surprise. The message on the machine clearly stated
that the will was going to be opened and read to the family, on July 5,
2005 at 1:00 p.m. at the county court house. Everyone was anxious to
find out just what he had left. No body was expecting much because
they knew my grandmother didn’t have very much. She had raised
seven children on her own.

will was being opened. It read as follows:
“Well all, I guess it was my time to go. I am in a better place
now, where there is no suffering or pain. I need you all to promise me
that you will be happy for me. I know it is hard to do, but it is for the
best. Now I need you all to take a deep breath for there is something
that you all must know. I have been saving some things up over the
last 50 years, mainly because I knew this day was
coming, I just wasn’t sure when. You all know that I was one for
money. We never had much, so when I made a little extra, I was
investing it in large corporations, trying to make a few bucks. After
quite a few years, I have managed to acquire $120 million to split
between you all. Now, you all aren’t getting the same, but remember to
be happy with what you get, because it could has been nothing.
To Patty, Marylyn, Steve, Mickey, and Debbie, I leave $2 million
each. I know this doesn’t seem like a lot, but when I was put in the
