The reason that I am holding this fund raiser is to help my mother settle the estate account of my dad.
My dad passed away on 27 January 2018.
My parents had a hard life, working for over 25 years to build their own business that they always referred to as their retirement plan.
Unfortunately my dad did not get to enjoy that hard work as his life was cut short due to a violent act against him.
My dad was old school and only took out life cover to cover the debt on their house. However, as many people out there, he did not take into account the effect of the cost of dying.This has left my mother and the family in a very unfortunate position.
My mother is still running
the business; however, she is barely making any profits to allow her to repay
the costs on my dad’s estate..
My dad wanted to expand the business and he made an agreement with his neighbour to first lease his house for a period of time and then to purchase it.
In the period that he leased the property, he borrowed money and made alterations to the property to increase his income capability.
I moved back home to help my dad with the purchase, and we were close to obtaining the funds we needed for the purchase when he lost his life.
Since the loss of my dad, my mother and myself was unable to obtain the funds required.
This lead to my mother losing a third of the business as well as her home for the last 5 years
The loss of my dad is still heavy on my whole family and his passing has left my mother with a loan to repay for alteration done on a property that she does not have anymore.
My two brothers and sister and I are trying everything we can to assist my mother in any way we can but it has been an uphill battle for the last 19 months.
This fundraiser is not to settle her debt or repay the loan, but just to help her settle the estate fees.
All surplus fund if any will be allocated to the legal action that we are currently pursuing with regards to my dad's passing.
Please open your heart and your wallets and help me to help my mother. and every bit will help.
