The mother of a veteran called regarding possible assistance on an apartment that she and her son shared – including the rent. We told her that that was possible depending upon required documentation. We did not hear further until about a week later when she called in, asking whether we had read about a man found shot to death in a local pond. That was her son.
With all of that to deal with she still, of course, had the same difficulty in meeting the rent. We received all the documentation and were able to help her out on that problem, which gives her some peace of mind. The local police have not yet determined the circumstances or the shooter. Plus, she lost her husband and her other child within the last 12 months. Wow, how does one endure?
