...was no help where finances were concerned. Apparently she had other concerns to deal with first. She made sure I had at least decent care. I do. I had to get a local carpenter to come in (he came today to take measurements)to build a safe ramp for me to get out of here in case of a fire. The temporary ramp RR built has a high edge the wheelchair had to put pulled over. The small front wheels would not go over it. I would be trapped in here. She thinks it's safer for me to sleep in the recliner here right by the front door then my bedroom which is a maze to negotiate in an emergency. Not to mention how narrow MH doors are - at least in the older MHs. Even the new narrower wheelchair I recently bought can hardly get through. The next time she comes I hope to talk to her about money.
He is also going to make a box for RR's ashes. I have 1/2 of them here with me and the other 1/2 is in a box I bought and we placed in a clumbarium. That's down in Bushnell FLs National Cemetery. That's where he wanted to go. It's about an hour from here but almost all interstate so not a bad drive. We plan to visit there occasionally bringing flowers and whatever.
My DIL in TN thinks I should sell everything and go into Assisted Living. I have no intention of doing that. Who wants to live amid total strangers? I would think that would be the last choice anyone would make. And this state has some of the worse places anyone can go. There doesn't seem to be anyone who cares. The state sure doesn't. The residents don't seem to. What happened to inspections? Large fines?
