The Inman family of Woodstock, Georgia is in desperate need of help this Christmas. A community relief fund account has been established for Billy and Kathy Inman, long-time residents of Woodstock, GA
The Inman family is desperate for help. Kathy Inman has been confined to a wheelchair since June of 2000 when an automobile wreck also killed the Inman’s only child
, sixteen-year-old Dustin. The Inman family was on their way to a Father’s Day weekend of fishing in the North Georgia Mountains when a car traveling at high speed crashed into the rear of the Inman’s vehicle while it was stopped at a red light in Ellijay, Georgia.
The driver of the other vehicle, an illegal alien, fled police custody and remains free today. U.S. authorities have located the fugitive, but informed Mr. Inman that current extradition agreements do not allow for returning Gonzalo Harrell Gonzalez to the U.S for trial.
The Inman’s need donations and assistance with payment of on-going medical expenses and a daytime home health-care aide for Mrs. Inman, age fifty-three.
Mr. Inman works three days a week as a route driver and has been paying for a caregiver for his wife for years while he is at work. The Inman’s lost their home-health care aide several weeks ago and Mr. Inman is frantically searching for a compassionate replacement companion for his wife.
Addressing the hardships they endure, Mr. Inman, a proud and soft-spoken man, admits the loss of their son, Mrs. Inman’s deteriorating health and financial strains are wearing on both him and his wife. “She is always in pain” he says of his wife of 33 years. Mrs. Inman, a rising star in management of the Kroger supermarket chain before the wreck, now requires help in personal care and meals.
It’s not fair. I don’t get to hug my son,” says Mr. Inman. “I don’t get to have him help me do whatever in the yard or on the truck. I won’t be a grandpa. Kathy is forgetting things…”
Since his computer expired, Mr. Inman has been trying to write letters on his smart phone to elected officials asking for guidance on finding help for his wife. He hopes to purchase a new desktop computer.
