I am losing my mind. Everything has gone to shit and I can’t see a way out. I am wreaked and so is my house. First, I had everyone looking for Rick’s half sister that he hadn’t seen for 55 years. Well, someone contacted her after his obit was in the paper. She lives inCalifornia and called me. I told her I had tried to contact her and I followed what Rick’s wishes to have him cremate and spread his ashes on the on the cremation. The funeral home told me, after I hacondolisences they have had him for 11 days, that Rick’s half sister needed to e-mail her or write a letter to give her permission No one informed me of it. Mind you it’s already paid for. I called her and some old man answered and I asked for her and he said she wasn’t home so I gave him a message to give her and what it was about. No call, so I tried at night and got her answering machine and left a message. She is in her seventies and I got snippy in the message that her brother had been laying dead for two weeks and I needed to take care of him. No answer. What can I do??? I hate people. HATE HATE, HATE THEM.
After Rick died, both pairs of my glasses broke. Each one had an arm missing. The dog ate my bottom denture. The commode is broken and won’t flush right and I have to tank the tank lid off to fix it. The kitchen light blew. My airconditioner broke. Everything is falling apart and the in the middle of all this, my out of control granddaughter got dumped on me. They never let me know how out of control she was so they packed her stuff in garbage bags and dumped them here when they didn’t even know where she was and I didn’t know where she was. Almost a week this stuff sat there and then I posted that the next day was garbage day and if anybody wanted everything to come pull it off the curb. I was so mad at her and her parents and other grandparents. None of them would allow her to live with them because of her behavior. So, why pick me when my husband had just died? I have found people lie so much. Not only my granddaughter but all the other people said if I need anything done to just call them. Yeah right. Only two people have stood by me and that was my mother and a friend I hadn’t talked to in years. Mind you, I have two brothers and a sister. My sister didn’t even say sorry for your lose. She came up with Momma on day six or seven. I let them in the door and my sister sat down in the wind chair opposite me. She didn’t say a word. It was tension was tight, so I finally told her exactly how she acted. She was a mean and hateful person. She still didn’t say anything, a few minutes later she left. My momma told me I didn’t give her enough time for her to apoligize. I screamed Six Days! She had six days and I let her in the door, didn’t I? My mother came to her defense so I told momma to go home and tend to her daughter. That she couldn’t even take my side when she was so clearly wrong and I am right? I also told her that everybody in my family just had a 4 day weekend and not even a call. I am sick of the people where he worked because they were throwing a memorial for Rick and take up a collection to help pay for his service. Yeah, right..
