On September 4, COVID took my Dad from this world. He is now in Heaven with God which is where he would want to be. He never wanted to be hooked up to machines to help him continue to live. Sometimes, it’s hard to let go of someone you love so much. You’ll do almost anything to keep them alive a little longer. But I was being selfish. I didn’t want to let him go. He was a good Dad to me and my brother. He wasn’t perfect but no one is. But he loved us unconditionally. Now he is free. He no longer feels any pain and he can breathe on his own.
But he has left behind his wife of 54 years with things that are going to be difficult to handle and figure out. My Dad was the one that brought home the small income that they lived on. My Mom is one of the strongest people I know. But even this is too much for one person to take on. I am helping as much as I can, but I don’t have enough money to pay for all of my parent’s bills and my own. They have a house that needs to be sold. She is several months behind on the payments. My Dad had also left several customers with on going projects that she is trying to figure out how to handle. She has got most of those figured out for now. But she makes $550/month from social security currently. So I am turning to all of you for assistance so I can help my Mom be able to not worry about money for a few months while she tries to sell the house. The house has a huge metal building in the backyard that my Dad ran his business out of. It is full of items we just don’t know what to do with. We don’t know if something is junk or if it’s something of value. That leaves us in a very vulnerable situation. We have to figure out what to do with what’s in that building before we can put the house up for sale. That is the main obstacle we are facing. I need my Mom to have some financial support to give her a chance to get these things figured out. I have paid as much of her bills as I can, but I am unable to afford all of them each month. And I cannot help her catch up on the house payments.
I never thought I would have to do one of these sites. Life never works out quite how we want it to. But here I am, asking for some help for my Mom to get through this difficult time. It’s completely okay if you can’t donate. I do ask for you to pray that God will watch over her and help her though. My Dad wouldn’t have wanted to leave my Mom in this situation. One of my last statements to him was that I would take care of her. And I plan to honor those words no matter what it takes. Thank you for reading this. And thank you to all that can donate and to all that are praying.
