  • Somebody's prayin'

    "Preacher," a church member said to me one Sunday, "I was driving in front of the church this morning, and I saw you standing by yourself up there at the top of the front steps. I knew what you were doing; I knew you were praying. And I just want you to know it made me feel better."

    It somehow makes us feel better knowing somebody's praying, though I can't explain exactly why.

    Somebody's Prayin,' over and over.

    Those who pay an abundance of taxes while they are alive shouldn't have their estates be required to pay a large amount of taxes to the government after they pass away.

    It's simply not fair and causes an undue burden on a family grieving over the loss of a loved one.

    We are of course referring to the estate tax, or, as many people refer to it - the death tax.

    The federal tax is levied on multi-million-dollar estates after a person in that tax bracket dies.
