Help us stay together
Organized by: Jennifer Coughlin
This is extremely difficult to write. Last week my significant other of over 15 years unexpectedly passed away. This was out of nowhere. He was fine one minute and gone the next. Our whole world has been turned upside down. He alwqys said myself and our dogs (4) would have nothing to worry about God forbid anything were to happen to him and we would be taken care of ans have our home. Unfortunately this is not the case. Because he did not have a will, his family wants everything and we have nowhere to go. They loved me the entire time we have been together (lived together over 15 years), but the moment he passed away, it was over. They won't talk to me now and the one time they did show up, the cops were called do to the violent situation. I'm disabled and have been a housewife so to speak our entire relationship. Recently undergoing 5 major surgeries back to back, not to mention the numerous others prior. It's bad enough I lost him. Now I'm facing losing everything else and I cannot lose my dogs. Finding a place to go is nearly impossible, let alone finding some place I can have them. My world is crumbling and I don't have anyone. I don't even know if this will make sense because of the heartbreak I'm enduring. He put his life on the line protecting and serving. Now hes gone and I'm all alone, except for our dogs. Even worse is he died in our home, which now feels like hell to me. There are bills to be paid, things that are needed and now his family wants to see me crumble. What kind of humans do such a thing? The one thing we all have in common is we lost the person we all love. I don't even have the funds to fight them. Do they think what this would do to their son, the way they're treating me?
