Help Andrew start over

Just a few months ago, Andrew lost not only his best friend and companion of many years, he also lost his caregiver. Joyce Falkowski passed away suddenly on January 21st, 2017. She was the sole financial provider for the two of them. Among her many talents, Joyce worked as a cannabis and critical-care nurse, and with O’NA HealthCare™ in Las Vegas, Nevada. Andrew suffers from Asperger’s syndrome, cluster headaches, and a few other medical conditions. Because of these health issues, Andrew has not been able to obtain work. This is why Joyce supported him. Since her passing, he has been looking for and doing odd jobs as they come up; however, they are not enough to pay the bills. She left a monthly debt that he cannot continue to support. We have looked for roommates, less expensive housing, and have even begun to sell his belongings to cover the rent and utility bills.
He is now in a position where he is being evicted and has no home to go to. To make matters worse, Andrew also has no family to lean on or help him through this time, other than us.
We are his friends. My name is Heather Lawrence, Joyce was one of my closest friends, and all she ever asked of me was that if something should happen to her, please help Andrew.
After several months of trying to find ways to help, we have exhausted all the options we have. We simply don’t have the money to pay his rent or utilities for him, so we feel his best option is to move him to Utah.
Even though we are not blood-related, we want to take him in and do all we can to help him get on his feet again. We have a job for him, a place to stay, and people that can help care for and provide the tools necessary for Andrew to begin a new life once he gets to Utah, but we have to move him and his things.
He is alone in Las Vegas and we are almost out of time. We need a truck and trailer or a moving van, and people to help us load up his life. We also need help cleaning out the house he and Joyce shared for several years. We are only a few people and can’t do it alone.

Please help. Andrew only needs to get to Utah; once he is here with us we can all help him out. I know my friends and Joyce’s friends are powerful creators and, together with a little love, we can get him back on track. The cost will cover his rent and utility bills, a truck and movers to pack up his stuff and lift the heavy things, and the deposit on an apartment of his own once he gets to Utah. Please share and post and pass it along. We never held a funeral or a memorial for Joyce because we never had the money to do so, but I know she would much rather want Andrew to be with family than have a memorial service. Please show your love and support and do all you can. I know together we can all show him how much Joyce meant to all of us, and how much Andrew is loved. And if you never had the pleasure and honor of knowing Joyce, I can promise you she would have changed your life for the better like she did ours. Namaste.
