Update as of Saturday 10/13/12. Today we lost an amazing man. May his smile and laughter live forever in our hearts!!
Hi to all the family and friends of Harry Timms and June; visiting this site. We are not always good at asking for help but sometimes it is necessary. Dad is officially in Hospice care now at West Hills Hospital. He has been taken off of all assistance and is being eased with pain medications. We do not have a time frame so we are trying to make sure he has constant visitors until he passes. He put up a great fight for the last few months, heck for the last few years. It started with his heart surgery 3 years ago, then problems following a burst appendix and now his bout with strokes and heart attacks. We want him to be at peace now. According to doctors he just can't win the fight.
Now is time to open our financial wounds. I put a large amount for donation because I honestly wasn't sure what to put. Unfortunately, I recently found out, he doesn't have life insurance. He lived in the now and never thought twice about something like this happening to him. At the time they needed the money to help keep them afloat. By the time it was thought about getting it for him again, he had so many health problems that it was too expensive to insure him. He has not worked for over 3 years and after his second hospitalization mom had to quit work to take care of him on a full time basis. They have been living off of social security, disability and all remaining savings. Now we are going to have to figure it all out and help mom.
We don't ask for help if you cannot afford to. However, know that even the tiniest amount helps. All of our love and utmost appreciation!!
June and April
