Letter: Costs are burdensome for elders

My wife and I recently received notice of our rent increase for 2018. It is only 8 percent this time. The notice included a 50 percent increase in our basic water bill. That’s the cost of having water come to our home. Then there is an added cost for the amount of water used.

This notice has caused me to reaffirm my belief that in college business classes they teach methods of making sure all elders are relieved of any monies that might be given to surviving family members after they pass on.

Even though we have worked all our lives to ensure that we don’t become a burden on society and provide an inheritance for our loved ones, they, the greedy, want to make sure they get more than their fair share.
