Money Out of Sinking Funds

June 27th, 2023 at 03:48 pm

I'm not sure if I have mentioned this before but I have a good bit of extended family in this area.  One of my mother's sisters and her husband raised their family in the next little town over.  They had 4 daughters, 3 of whom have spent their lives and raised their families here.  Unfortunately, there is a great deal of substance abuse in the lives of many of these relatives.  I am fond of them and friendly with them, but I am not close with them and do not spend any significant time with them.

Well, about 2 weeks ago SB spotted a flyer which had been posted around town.  A 40 year old woman was missing.  She is the daughter of one of my first cousins.  She was last seen on 6/7/23.  Well, since then her body has been found.  It is very sad. No word yet on if her death was accidental or if foul play was involved. There is a Go Fund Me to cover her final expenses.  I sent $100, so I'm going to transfer it back to myself out of my Gifts sinking fund.

    Petunia, that is tragic! I'm so sorry.

    I'm sorry to say that all of my sons have had a friend or acquaintance die from drugs or suicide. It's hard to accept because older folks like me see their whole lives in front of them that could be created, even with a brief checkered past.
