“I don’t have any money”
Did you find any insurance papers?”
“This, here. But it says redeemed on it. What does that mean?”
“I’m not sure. Let me see.”
Joanie handed Teddy a clear plastic envelope filled with neatly folded papers. He removed the paperwork and unfolded it. There were six sheets and he slowly began to flip them over as he read through them. “Oh boy, Joanie. He cashed it in last September.”
“What do you mean?”
“I mean this policy was worth $7,500, but he cashed it in. He redeemed it. I guess these things are worth some money before you die. He only got $156 for it. So, this policy is worthless. I don’t even know why he kept it.”
“He must have needed the money pretty bad. That’s sad. So, now what do we do?”
“Geez, Joanie, I don’t know. This is all new to me. The one thing I do know is that I have to tell Mrs. Kelly. Dang, I have no idea what a funeral costs. And we’re supposed to pay for it. I think I’m getting a knot in my stomach.”
Take a seven day journey with the five, newly orphaned Peach kids, as they begin their struggle to remain a family while planning their dad’s funeral.
They find an ally in the local parish priest, Father Tim Sullivan, who tries his best to guide them through the strange, unchartered and turbulent waters of “grown-up world.” A story that is sad, funny, and inspiring as it shows how the power of family love and faith can overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles.
