Her Money, Her Mortgage and Her Menage

Grandma LeeGrandma Lee’s money now was not her’s. It became her children.

Her belongings also got taken away.

Glendine, who was waiting for grandmother to return home, was kicked out of grandmother’s house.

And Vanderbilt, the mortgage company (who was ripping Grandma Lee off in the first place by charging her a 12 percent interest rate)  came to take the almost- fully- paid- for -trailer away.

Prior to Vanderbilt coming, we asked Vanderbilt if they would work out a payment plan with the grandchildren who are in  college, and give us a low-interest rate payment plan.

We can’t EVER lower the interest and you can’t pick up where your grandma left off. They continued, you have to re-buy the trailer and start over.

Since they did not really want to offer affordable plans, we tried different banks who asked for documents that we did not have and her children were not too willing to give it to us.

We had no other choice but to leave the trailer in the children hands.

When Vanderbilt came to take the trailer, they met neighbors who refused to move their poles and other property that the movers needed to move to lounge the trailer away.

So, the trailer is still there.

And all of this is going on without my grandma knowing.


Her Money, Her Mortgage and Her Menage

Grandma LeeA few blogs back I blogged about my grandma and my family.

My Grandma Lee fell sick late last year. She lived all alone in a beautiful trailer, on beautiful land, in the state that is for lovers. Virginia.

However, apparently, there aren’t that many loving people there. When she fell sick, her son (the only one of her living 3 children who lives in Virginia) picked her up and put her in a nursing home.

My grandma is the first one in the family to go in a nursing home. She is also the one in the family who took care of her mother, my great-grand mother, when everyone else was too busy.

“We put her in there because we can’t help her”.

“It would be better for us and her, if she was in there”.

When questioning her children about the medicine my grandma now has to receive (even though she originally didn’t take meds because of our religion),  the reply was, “my faith is not that strong”.

So, they put her in the nursing home.
