My mom and dad have passed recently.
They went very close to each other which is somehow sort of a blessing.
Knowing that they didn’t have to do without one another made losing them both a bit easier. However, as the sole heir, I have had my work cut out for me in settling their estate. I had no idea just how much work being the executor of their estate would be. There have been plenty of late nights under the HVAC vent at the kitchen table trying to get it all figured out. But I definitely wanted to make sure that their wishes were seen through. Once much of the estate was settled, I had to figure out what to do with the old cabin they own. It was a place that my dad loved. He would drag mom and me out of the HVAC comfort of home to that old cabin in the woods. It was a neat place but the cabin was really rugged. But instead of selling it and the land, I chose to make it something that I could pass on to my family. This required some upgrades. And adding HVAC equipment was a top priority. Thankfully, I have a buddy who is an HVAC professional. I coaxed him with good food and better beer to come up to the cabin and help me install heating and cooling. It really wasn’t that difficult because the ductless heat pump is just so straightforward to deal with. And now, we have great heating and cooling on our trips up there to continue renovating the cabin.
