30 Yrs Caregiver-Mom Gone-Need Help

After 30 years of caring for my parents, both are now gone. Mother passed on May 15 after 2 months of intense, 24/7 caregiving by me . It's been a hard time for sure,  and I may end up living in my van.  I have to stay here at home with a hateful brother, who thinks he owns the house scot-free.    But enough about that.  

I have to move forward.  But I need some serious help to get back on my feet.  Mary , one of my best friends (and family of choice), wrote this: 

"What do you do when your decades of being a caregiver come to an end? First, you grieve. Then you try your best to put your life back together one day at a time.

After decades of caregiving, my dearest friend, Tor Froland, needs our help in re-starting his life and his business.

Tor has helped me through every life crisis I have faced for more than 25 years. He has always been there for me. Through divorce, deaths, emergencies, and more. I know that I'm not alone. I know he's been there for so many of you too.

Tor's loving and giving Spirit have touched all of us. And now is the time when he needs us, instead of the other way around.

Together, we can remove a bit of the urgency and worry of meeting his basic living expenses for the remainder of 2017. He needs help now with the mortgage, utilities, property taxes, insurance, car expenses, food -- basic living needs through December.

This will give him time to grieve and time to rebuild his life, hopefully with all of us in it as always.

Please, friends, join me in helping Tor -- my brother of choice -- the way that he has helped so many of us for so long. "

Love,
Mary Wisner Miller
