"My company provides some life insurance, but realized it wasn’t near enough, so I supplemented it with a plan from ABE. A few years ago, a good friend of mine died very suddenly. He wasn’t yet 40 and he left behind a wife and three kids with no insurance. That’s when I decided that was not going to happen to us."
