Because my dad is a small private farmer he could not afford to carry very much insurance on his equipement, house and buildings. The insurance also does not assist with funeral cost for my mom and they lived on a very meager income from their farm and social security. Because of the unforseen nature of this disaster my dad is not prepared for the expenses of the funeral and the loss of almost all of his belongings.
My mom was one of the most loving and caring persons I have ever known. She was constantly calling people to check on them and to help others in the area that needed anything. I believe many of the people who lived in the area looked to her as a second mom or grandmother because of her caring nature. She was a wonderful mother to my sister and myself as well as a wonderful grandmother to her 3 grandchildren. My mom and dad have been married for 59 years and would have celebrated their 60th anniversary in September of this year.
