Re: Things - Carol
No, it's not her son. It's her brother and his wife she and her mother live with. First they took in her mother, but not for free. I'm told she turns over her check, though they don't need it. And then, when Joanne failed to be able to work and live on her own due to one illness after another, they let her come to stay in the motor home. She struggled for months, trying one living situation after another before that happened. It was a last resort. I feel very sorry for her. Her son is another matter. He is living with his girlfriend and two kids in a home her parents' own. The girlfriend and her mother are not nice to Joanne. The son doesn't seem to care. She cries her eyes out. She was a good mother, her son never lacked for anything. And she was a good grandmother, concerned and monetarily generous to the grandbaby. Talked about him to anyone who would listen. Now they've aced her out of their lives. She keeps asking, what did I do, and I tell her nothing. It's like my daughter's ex-husband. He's done a similar thing, and for no good reason. Some people know no decency.
