His wife died less than two weeks ago.
She was 32.
Now the father of three children is facing burial expenses because his wife’s life insurance policy is being contested, in part because it was taken out less than two years ago.
“A friend of mine told me about the Salvation Army. I went and applied for help and they told me about Share the Season,” the father said. “We were just trying to get back on our feet. She had been ill for some time.”
She had been diagnosed with lupus seven years ago.
The children are ages 14, 9 and 8.
“I just need help with the funeral costs,” he said. “When we took out the policy she had to live for two years. She was five months short of the two years.”
Her funeral was Tuesday.
Their children, he said, are holding up.
