–I am so sorry to hear of your misfortune. I have walked inyour
shoes and it is no fun at all and very devastating. Things will get

back a work now ( much smaller pay) , it was too little too late. We
were in such a hole and the new income is so little that we were
forced into bankruptcy. Our home is in the forclosure process, we
have to be out by October. And top it all off, the government gives
this help to damn near everyone but us.
