When last we left our intrepid heroine, her husband had died suddenly, she had no permanent home, no car, and no job.
Actually, she's had a shitty decade of marginal employment in SC, with the kids living with family in TX. She and husband finally scraped up to relocate to Lubbock, where he had a job, and then he died suddenly in the hotel.
With help from friends and some of you:
He has been cremated and she has the legal paperwork, and accounts settled.
She has acquired a vehicle.
She has successfully defeated bureaucrats in single combat to replace her expired SC license (literally the week after his death) by mail.
She has moved to the Dallas area where the kids are.
Is staying with friends, but the landlord won't allow that for long.
And of course, WINTER STORMAGEDDON.
So, she needs to get into lodging and find employment (there are people hiring, so that's positive). She needs to immediately pay for car insurance. She needs to shortly pay to properly coordinate for a TX DL to go with the TX car.
Then she can finally be reunited with her teenagers.
If you are still minded and able to donate, I have her direct email for paypal, or you can send to me and I'll forward. I'll be happy to send a signed hardcover of my choice to anyone donating $50, and yes, I still have a couple from late last year to get out. I BROKE A SNOWPLOW CLEARING MY DRIVEWAY.
She says, "Thanks to everyone for all you've done." And she sounded very grateful and touched.
