Hello, my name is Sabine and I can’t believe that I have to beg for financial assistance from complete but hopefully kind strangers.
You see my best friend and husband for the last 41 years passed away February 18th of this year of pneumonia complications. He got sick and died within 48 hours. If that is not bad enough, I am drowning in debt and here is why.
We have been self-employed since 1980 buying and selling horses. He did the buying and selling and I did all the office work. We never made a lot of money but it was his passion. He was now retired but a “good” friend of his ordered a specific horse, so my husband took a loan to buy it and get it to him. Needless to say, the good friend backed out. So now I am stuck with this $ 27,135.72 loan I can’t possibly pay back and board bills for a horse I can’t get rid of. I also have his funeral bill of $ 2,700.00 on my credit card.
I am 59 years old and I can’t find a job. Another hit in the gut came from the Canadian Government informing me that I do not qualify for a widows pension or death benefits. So now I have absolutely no income.
I have sold everything there is to sell. But all the things I held so dear, is worth pennies to strangers. I reached out to friends we helped over the years but all of a sudden everybody is so busy but they will get back to me shortly….never to be heard from again. So I am completely on my own, lonely and so very desperate. My sister managed to send me enough for 2 payments but she herself is on a small pension but I am forever grateful to her.
So this is at least part of my story and I thank you for reading and hoping you find it in your heart to help me out a little.
Thank you so very much
