24065622_1506165015.6207_funddescriptionMy mother Marie Orange was put on life support Sunday 9/17/17 after being discharged from hospital too early. She had mini seizures which lead to no oxygen to her brain. It took 7 minutes for the paramedics to arrive.
My daddy Melvin Orange said that I should come to Memphis asap.
 I arrived at the airport at 1:30pm on 9/20/17 and rushed to my mom's bedside at the hospital. I stayed for 2hours then hurried to find my dad. My dad has lost his will to live because he says he can't live without his wife. The doctor said it was costing $55,000 a day to keep her on life support and so my dad decided to sell the house although it was worth more than $20,000 he signed the papers anyway because he wanted my mother to have a proper burial.
$8,000 went to back owed taxes so my dad came home with $12,000 . 
I verified that the money was there and we we're about to discuss arrangements when at 7:40pm or a min later, two guys masked and armed busted into the house holding guns to my little sister Linda Orange head by the door rushing down the hall demanding the money the knew what bag to look for and the amount he took the bag beside me from the bed then I ran after him and grabbed the bag of money and he held a gun to my head and said he would shoot me and kill me I screamed and cried begging them not to do this because that's money was to bury my mother and he yelled again let then he took the gun and held it to my 4 year old daughters head and said he would shoot her if I didn't let go. So I let it go and they shoved my daughter and I into my dad room where my dad was in his wheelchair and my uncle shocked puzzled not moving was and the two guys who were family friends was there the two robbers then grabbed those two guys and ran out the house with then with the money I called the police at 7:47pm and the came out but did not chase after them they took statements and also  called the detective which my father and I have to prove that we have $12,000 cash in the house and called the guy who bought the house which he verified as well... My dad was set up and they knew what that money was for..... Please we need help because now the house is gone and money we had for my mom and for relocating my dad sister and lil brother to California we're my kids and I live. Now we have nothing and the authorities told us to take it to the public please help us if y'all can we don't know what to do and that was my daddy's last hope now he really is in a bad mental state not wanting to live please help us recover from this..... The amount of money above was an estimate because I didn't know how to ask for please help us please

Hi it will be 5 months on February 28 since my mother passed away and the robbery since then my family has really been going through a ruff patch and it's by the grace of God we are still here... The guy, his wife, and his gang that robbed us also knew my mother passed away and went to public records and obtain my mother's deed to the house and forged her signature with white out in place of my mother. Also there were four other homes put in my mother's name we filed police reports and they are known for fraudulent activity. There is an investigation however we don't have the money for an attorney to get justice and would like for anyone reading this to refer us to an attorney or if possible please share this so we can raise more money to help my family and I get justice.. the money we raised so far was only able to pay for funeral arrangements and my daddy used his sister disability benefits to help bury my mother. We would like like to thank you all for your condolences and prayers... Please continue to pray for us financially we have been penny pinching although I work it's not enough for me to take care of everyone especially the kids... Pray for us and thank you all again from the bottom of my heart... God bless you all...
