About “Merc 4x4”

Well this is a long story but I'll try to keep it simple. My wife got sick a few years back and the quality of her life has for ever changed. One time we went to the hospital for a visit and we asked the DR what the long term prognosis was. His response was that we should not worry about what the future holds and enjoy everyday together. Well my wife and I talked about it and she wondered about not knowing if she be around for retirement. So I asked her what see look forward to the most about retirement, and she said. "I always look foward to having a new gramma mobile to drive to bingo" Well thats all I needed to here. I told her to go pick out what ever she want and promptly took the money out of my 401K, figuring it was hers as well. And here's the by product.
