I'm "OGKaren" from Sespe and I've been out of work (save for a few small freelance jobs) since the raid. Didn't expect it to take this long for Sespe to re-open, and things have gotten particulary grim lately. My adult son has finally found a job, but things are reaching a crisis stage at the moment. 

The (extension) on the electricity bill was due two days ago, and phone service will be the next to go. I'm all out of other options, and I feel just awful about this. So, with my apologies, I humbly request your help. 

Thank you.

We are so, so, incredibly grateful and blown away by the support we've received, it has kept the lights on and the phones connected, both of which we would have lost otherwise. Things are moving in a positive direction with regard to employment, with Kurt having a very promising interview and the licensing that will get me (his mom, Karen) back to work also (finally) moving forward and looking very hopeful.

We've gone almost 8 months without any regular income and we're about a month from *almost* making it, right now trying to get a little money to the landlady (who has been astonishingly patient with us, I've never, ever, had anyone be this patient with rent, but patience does have its limits).

Kurt and I have decided that once we're back on our feet we want to be just like you beautiful folks that have been so helpful to us, we're going to find ways to help other people who are going through rough times and make them feel loved, the way y'all have made us feel.

Again, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

I barely knew you, but I'll miss you terribly just the same. ♥

I met Dotty in a reddit thread on /r/minecraft 8-9 years ago. She invited me to her small Minecraft server, Kurtland. After spending some time getting to know Dotty and the other members, I invited a friend of mine to the server play also. Through this server we formed a close relationship, started dating and eventually married. It was a place we could hang out even when we were apart. Dotty treated us with kindness from the moment we met. In part, my relationship to my wife is owed to her and her server full of nice people. We will miss you Dot. -Higgs069 & SuperlaTiff https://i.imgur.com/GKP8VXL.png

It's been a long time cousin Karen. I'm sorry that this is the last communication we will ever have. Your passing was unexpected to me and I'm very sad that we weren't closer. I have fond memories of you when we were kids. RIP Karen!
