I am a widow. Oh, how I despise that word. It’s a dark and depressing label. You see, my husband was killed in a logging accident on July 27, 2016. I would get up every morning he worked and help him with breakfast and lunch. He would always hug me at the door and kiss me goodbye. I remember that morning feeling like I got an extra big and tight hug. Never in my wildest dreams would I ever know that it would be the last 😭😭. He was killed in a logging accident. I knew in my gut that something was wrong that day. I never heard from him. I tried calling and texting. No answer. I knew when the sheriff showed up on my porch later that day what the news was. He didn’t even have to say a word. My world shattered to pieces and has never been the same.
The reason I’m requesting financial help is because I need money to keep up with my house, my truck and other bills. I’ve been on my own for 3 1/2 years now. I’ve managed to stay afloat with savings and what work I could do. My husband was a hard worker, sometimes working 2+ jobs to take care of his family. He was all about family. He grew up in a broken family and was determined for his kids to not live that way My husband was the love of my life, my rock, my biggest fan and a big supporter of his kids He would work so much but in his “spare” time he would help others in need. I always joked with him about me being at the bottom of his list! I miss his hugs, his support, his wonderful sense of humor and his work ethic. He could make me laugh even when I didn’t want to!
I made a promise to him to quit working and take care of my grandkids when they came. As of now I have 2 beautiful and crazy grand daughters! I love them like my own! My savings are gone now, I work when I can but am not able to make what I need. I need help to get through about the next 6-8 months. I’m behind on my house and truck now. I have had to swallow my pride and ask friends and family for help. It’s probably one of the most embarrassing things I’ve had to do. I have always been the person who helps out. It’s so very hard for me to ask for help. So here I am, can anyone help me?
