Help Gary and Debbie Clark

Look at them ❤ Im sure you all know what an amazing couple my parents are. This wonderful man and great guy is my dad. He has also been the best husband to my mom for 50 years, a caring and helpful dad, has been the perfect grandpa and now with everything on his plate, the best great grandpa we could ever hope for (ask berlynn, she will give you an ear full ). It breaks my heart to say that My family is in trouble and we need help!!! My mom God bless her soul, is very very sick and doesn't get around much anymore. She is on machines to help her breath and is in the final stages of COPD, and emphazima (she did quit smoking after 50+years, yay mom!!) My dad is the one right now who needs some help. He would give anyone of us his last dollar and the shirt off his back if you needed it. We all know what a huge heart he has. He is struggling the hardest I've ever seen him struggle. My mom's health has taken a turn for the worst and her live- in nurse (an ex friend of my daughters) just up and moved out with no notice. He takes care of her 24/7. My dad is doing the best he can. My mom is the most beautiful person inside and out, but onerary like always. He also has Heather and Berlynn (3yr) to take care of. He has spent every bit of his savings just trying to survive. Currently he does not have a working vehicle. The big red truck (3500 Chevy diesel) broke down about a year ago when the vehicle security system shut down and we have had no funds to pay the mechanic to fix it, plus it's had bad tags since moving from Nevada to California. The truck is paid off but the tags are around $5000. He has been driving his 1994 jeep Cherokee that we traded a cord of wood for over a year ago. Well it finally broke down 3 weeks ago. We have made multiple attempts to repair it since he has owned it. He used the stimulus money to rent a car but those funds have ran out. He is now stuck with no vehicle to take my mom to her appointments or get groceries, etc which is putting my mom into panic mode (major panic attacks)and then the multiple 911 calls. His cell phone was just recently turned off because he was on a group plan with Margaret and she closed the account for financial reasons. His house phone will not call out to most numbers without the 209 area code. He doesn't have any extra money and sometimes doesn't have enough to pay his pg&e and mortgage. My mom and dad moved to Jerseydale because it was beautiful and mariposa is where they wanted to spend their last happy years of retirement. This is nothing happy, my dad is scared and a disaster all the time. I am also struggling and my car is in the shop and has been for weeks. I get rides to their house as often as I can and honestly my situation is just as bad as his. I'm begging and praying for help. My mom and dad need help. He needs a reliable vehicle to get my mom to the doctor and a cell phone with service that works where he lives (he got a phone since I wrote this with a new number) I know this is bad time for everyone with this virus shutting everything down, but my family needs help like never before and I don't know what to do. I'm actually begging for anyone to please help. My mom and dad needs their friends and family today! $1500-$3000 for a used car that will get him around and a Verizon prepaid phone is all he needs(done) The only way to contact him is on messenger. Gov phones do not work up where he lives and I'm waiting for a call back from the landline people. It's just bad timing for everyone Anything helps at this point.  If anyone can all lend a few dollars right now...my mom and dad could sure use it.. I'm sorry to have to send a message like this but I have no other options. I love you and thank you. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.   I am sending this to all my friends and family. This is a group text. I apologize that I'm not able to be more personal. We don't have a lot of time and or days left. Becci
