I Found My Late Husband’s Secret Suitcase, the Contents inside Broke My Heart When I was 18, I made a decision that would affect the rest of my life: I married sweet, funny Daniel, whom my wealthy father disapproved of.

“You marry that low-life, and you’ll get nothing from me, Margaret!” my father had screamed. “You’ll see what love really is when you have to live in a one-bedroom rat-hole with roaches crawling up the walls!” But I didn’t listen. I was sure I would never regret loving Daniel. Ever.At first, it was romantic to go home to that tiny apartment (there were no rats and roaches — there was no space). I found myself a job as a receptionist in a big hotel, and Daniel started working for the post office. “Job security, love,” Daniel had explained when I urged him to find a higher-paying job. “I have to know there’s going to be a pension to keep us when we are old!” I understood Daniel’s obsession with security. Hadn’t he watched his mother live on the pittance social welfare awarded her after his father died in a work accident at a construction site? He’d been an illegal, no insurance, no pension for his widow and five children. Daniel was determined the same thing wouldn’t happen to me or our children. Working for the post office, Daniel believed, would give us that assurance. But two modest salaries didn’t go far with two children to raise. Even though we were frugal, every cent Daniel and I earned, we spent. There was precious little left for savings.Then our two children grew up, left home, and started their own lives — our son moved to Alaska, and our daughter to Brazil, and Daniel and I were right back where we had started. It was around this time that my father passed away.
