  4. Dinahsoar says:

    His mom doesn't want to burden her children with concerns that are hers…my mother was the same way. I'd have helped her in a heartbeat had she needed my help, but she always figured out and managed to take care of herself and she did a good job of it.

  5. RA Trek says:

    Has he actually met these people? He doesn't really know anything about them.

  6. yvonne mclaughlin says:

    If she doesn't ask for help you can't do anything for her. Be prepared to be looked at as the Bad Brother. So sorry about your father!

  7. Anita Vaughn Adventures and Funnies! says:

    So sorry Zach

  8. likexbread says:

    Doesn’t matter if you’re 30, 40, 60, or 80, you need to prepare a plan for if you die. Have wills, advance directives, and name beneficiaries for all your financial assets.

  9. Mary Peterson says:

    My prayers are with Zack and family

  10. Janet Cross says:

    Yes you need to talk to mom tell her I hear for you

  11. Daylon Morrison says:

    Tell your loved ones to get vaccinated folks.

  12. Un Named Channel says:

    Zac… If you read this I'm really sorry that you went through this. I know exactly how you feel. My father passed from cancer. His GF would give updates but I always felt like i was missing critical information. I was 36 he was 65. My heart goes to you my friend.

  13. Rodney Evans says:

    Walk away! They don't want your help. Let them fail. No good deed goes unpunished.

  14. Marco Almeida says:

    Poor father just reached the retirement age too… this age restriction for retirement accounts is brutal

  15. The Investor Domain says:

    God bless him.

  16. Frank Snow says:

    One child, of several, living with aging parents is always touch and go. Sometimes it works well, sometimes it's a catastrophe. And there ain't no formula any good at predicting the thing.

  17. MelloYello says:

    Sounds like sepsis…that’s terribly unfortunate. Hope things work out for this guy and his family.

  18. Tom M says:

    "Oh, Zack, I'm sorry. What's wrong with him?"

    Should have replied, "Didn't you hear what I just said? He's dying!"

    Feel for the guy though. Tough to walk into the situation and try to help clean things up. I've been there. Unhelpful sibling only add to the problems. Best of luck to Zack.

  19. Lin Haton says:

    She may be the one who pays the bills and already controls the family's finances. She might not need your help. It's her business.

  20. RA Allen says:

    Let Mom stand on her own two feet, since she wants to be secretive/in denial.

  21. PIT BULL says:

    Did he get the jab thats what I want to know!!!!

  22. Frederick Sharon says:

    Zack u got this, my man.

  23. Teresa Boykin says:

    Your latter days are suppose to be peaceful. When you get married and have kids you should have your own place period.I understand helping family and giving them a time frame. Let mom handle her business. I pray that the dad be ok Amen

  24. Hasan Abdi says:

    God be with u Zack

  25. Elizabeth Allen says:

    I feel bad for Zach. Honestly he’s too young to have to take care of his mother

  26. Ray T says:

    "It is necessary to be strong in the face of death, because death is intrinsic to life. It is for this reason that I tell my students: aim to be the person at your father's funeral that everyone, in their grief and misery, can rely on. There's a worthy and noble ambition: strength in the face of adversity."  – Jordan B. Peterson

  27. Randall says:

    I’m still baffled over the fact he called a financial talk show with about a million listeners the same day he got this information. What happened to grieving and figuring out the other stuff later?

  28. Ann Mitt says:

    Let mom handle it

  29. Fly217 says:

    The 23 year old son and his wife and kids needs to leave like yesterday. Goodness.

  30. TheAustinman49 says:

    I can empathize with this situation because for years I’ve tried to stress the importance of estate planning and my Mother just says I’m not going to worry about it until I need to, and here we are 20+years later and things are more and more expensive and with my retirement plans the doors are closing very quickly

  31. Miguel Noyola says:

    Respect for the family. These are house of cards that just crumbles overtime.

  32. Jean C says:

    Zack sounds like a really good man whose taking charge of a really difficult situation. I hope he gets all the help he needs to help his family through this.

  33. Blaze Smith says:

    My dads dying

    Get on beans and rice rice and beans
