Bowers recovery/save their home

I cannot believe my life has come to this...but here I am breaking my silence, laying awake, pondering how to get back on my feet. I can't sleep, and I am worried sick. I need your help. Even if you feel like you can't give much- $5 would help at this point. I am emploring you to share this with your friends, and ask them if they would share a "cup of coffee" with two people who are usually the ones giving to others. 

My precious mother's battle with cancer placed a huge financial burden on Bart and me. She died flat broke. Her passing has placed even more of a financial burden on us because her body is currently in storage in a cooler, against my wishes because a family member refuses to agree to any final arrangements. The daily storage rate is not cheap and we are approaching "day 50". My mother died in Florida. Unfortunately, FL law prevails, and I have no control or choices in the matter. 

And as the old proverb says, 'when it pours'...we have no current location to operate our there's that...Being that we have been "self employed" for the last 4 years, the banks won't loan us money. We've tried...we've gotten a "no" from all. 

We are doing our part. We currently have everything we own for sale. We aren't just sitting around. We have jobs beginning the first of the week. We just need a boost of funds immediately. I should have done this a week ago, but stubborn pride stopped me. I am so embarrased to do this, but I am also desperate. The stress from it all is ruining my own health, and I've drawn the conclusion that good friends will help if I ask, and strangers may even help if I ask, and I have to drop the pride and just ask. So, please help us.
