Re: [IP] Insurance



I have been a diabetic for 21 years and it is true that she will have a
problem getting private insurance, I don't think it will be a problem if she
becomes employed with a large company. I have been employed with Snap-on
Tools for 14 years and have not had a problem. In fact my insurance benefits
are second to none. I also have 50k in life insurance through our company.
Hope this helps
Randy
