I'll have to double check that, thanks!!

She was only 40 years old. It made me realize even more that it's time to go, because you never know what will happen. I know numerous people like that. Another friend of mine died suddenly 3 months before retirement, never having a chance to enjoy the fruits of his labor.

I don't want to live an extravagant lifestyle in retirement, but I don't want to just survive either. I think we'll be able to live the life we've been living and with a little luck and proper financial management maybe a little more. I don't want to die with money in the bank. I'll tell you this....everyday I'm still working feels like it's taking two from my life.

Thanks again....wish me luck

Agree with you about everyday still working taking 2 from your life. Life is so short and time is really precious. It is so important to make the most of early retirement, we are all getting older and who knows how long we can stay healthy. The clock is ticking away.
