My dad passed away 10 years ago.He was a “good”dad while alive (not the best husband). I spent lot of my youth/adult life fixing his mistakes after he died, which weren’t mine to fix. While I have tried to forgive him for myself, the relationship with his memory is complicated. Our family friends (husband and wife) who really were there for us in every sense after his death came to visit. That “uncle” is the closest thing to a father that I have. Today, I really wished he had been my father.

Parent has a thrift savings plan and it’s all in bonds which yields a really low rate of return. retiring this year. With coming inflation, would it be a good idea to consider shifting at least some of that into other funds like the C Fund (common stock index) or otherwise diversify? They don’t need all of the money right away but would need to slowly dip into it over time. TIA!
