Hello I am writing this today because the only family I had passed away on May 20, of this year. She was all I really had over the last 26 years and we were extremely close all of my life. She was the only one who stood up for me, and loved me. She was 84 years old.
I grew up in southern California, and my parents split up when I was around 12 years old. I ended living with my father, who was very abusive, and the only safe place I had to go was my Grandmas house. So I tried to spend as much time there as I could, even sneaking out, and riding my bicycle there to hide out because she would not let my father hurt me. When I was 15 my father literally in the middle of the night, without telling anyone, moved me and his new family to the Northwest. I was told that if i tried to contact any of my family he would kill me and I believed him. He wouldn’t even put me back in school because he was afraid that we could be traced through the transfer of my school records, so instead he made me go to work. I got a job pumping gas at a gas station and worked 40+ hours a week. When I was 16, he had my stepmother kick me out of the house, and she dropped me off on MLK Blvd and she never looked back. I lived on the streets of Portland for a year, until a very kind woman with kids my age, rented me a room for $50 a week. She encouraged me to go back to school, ( which I did!) And subsequently earned my G.E.D. I finally reached out to my Grandma when I was 19, it took 3 years for me to build up the courage in fear of what my father had told me, but once I did I never lost contact with her again. I ended up getting into a union apprenticeship, getting married, and did very well for my family for a while.
2009 I was involved in a tragic accident on a construction site that took out L4,L5, and S1. It required me to have 2 major back surgeries, and has since left me disabled. My wife left me once I could no longer make good money because I only make about 1/4 Of what I used too. I have adjusted to it and raised my son, but I did not realize, nor was I ready to endure the cost of a death, and her and I were all we had. I was able to pay for the funeral and mortuary service but I am about to loose everything because I paid that instead of the bills I have. And I still have to come up with the money to ship her to Arkansas to be buried next to my Grandfather, I have never asked anyone for anything before, but please help I need around $11,000 to pay for everything. My PayPal is paypal.me/jasonpecksr anything will help please, I don’t know what else to do,
