Having never been one to be comfortable with a lot of money (I come from a long line of people who have struggled just to get by) I keep wondering what is the point of having this huge pile of cash when I die?I realize that this is a philosophical issue that I have to work through, but I wondered if all you reasonable folks would have some wisdom to offer.>>If you've run the numbers and are satisfied you will have more than enough to cover all contingencies in your retirement, then I for one would say it's time to enjoy life. Chasing after more dollars to leave behind for others let's someone else enjoy the fruits of your labors. Grab the brass ring yourself. You earned it. Now enjoy it.Regards....Pixy
