Hello Universe. My name is Matthew Mancini and this is my story. A few weeks ago I had been posting on a sailing forum seeking to find a Sailrite Ultrafeed LSZ-1 industrial sewing machine. Within the forum, people had posted from all over the world about creative projects, machines used, and modifactions many boat owners had made to their boat. I left my name and contact information on the forum incase someone came across it and was selling the machine i was seeking. A few weeks later I received a text message from a woman asking me if i was still interested in the machine I had posted about. She sent me a list of all the supplies she had and asked if i was interested in taking a look at them. My frist thought was, well, where are you located? I personally am located in Los angeles and most of the forum was international and or on the east coast. Here to find out she lives less than 5 minutes from me, was really bizarre. When I came to her house there was "For Sale Signs", on almost everything that she owned. She took me to the garage and showed me all the supplies. She was indeed in possesion of almost everything I was in need of. I looked up at her and asked. Do you mind if I ask why you are selling all these things? They were basically brand new. Her eyes welled up and she said I just lost my husband. I just loosing my father to a heart attack immediate understood the amount of grief she was dealing with gave her a hug and said, "i'm so sorry to hear of your loss". I a complete stranger, stood in her garage holding her as she cried on my shoulder. I knew she needed to get it out, so I stood there a tall kleenex. She took control of her emotions the best she could and she told me the story about her husband. He was a contractor. The sole propietor of her houseold. They have two young boys and she became a house mother after the Los Angeles Superior Court laid off most of their bilingual interpreters. Her husband and his two best friends decided to take a trip for a week to Costa Rica. While swimming they were pulled from the beach by an extremly strong rip tide. His two friends were able to make their way back to shore, but Daniel Harley age 56 drowned. His body was recovered immediately by his friends with a kayak. And then his body was expedited back to the United States for his funeral. The family is currently dealing with the grief of loosing Daniel as their father, husband, friend, and loved one. But they shouldn't have to deal with lossing everything that they own and worked for. They have a life insurance policy. But the insurance company says it will be a year until any money can dispearsed to them. I am writing to the universe to help me raise money for the Harley family, so that they don't lose everything they have spent years building. Please donate anything you can. Any positive energy will be returned to you. Thank You.
