I got a phone call from our friend last week.
She got beach modern home from shopping and the gas furnace wasn’t working.
She had icicles hanging from his ceiling because of broken pipes. She said he wanted myself and others to turn the gas furnace back on so he could get heat in the modern home and melt the ice. I upset about his not having heat, and I ran right over. I knew he couldn’t stay in the modern home with broken pipes, so I asked for his daughter’s phone number. I wanted to make sure he had some locale to stay until the homeowner’s insurance adjuster arrived and got repairs done on the house. I got in touch with his daughter, who told myself and others he would be right over. In the meantime, I was looking around the house, and I realized someone had turned off the power. I asked his if he had forgotten to pay the power bill, but he couldn’t remember. His kid showed up half an hour later, and I had left a note on the door for his to come to our house. She walked in and asked what happened. I said there was no power and without power; the gas furnace didn’t work and the pipes froze. She hugged his mom and asked if he was okay, and my friend said he thought his partner had paid the bills, and I was confused. He died over 4 years ago. His kid told myself and others he had dementia and often forgets things. It took three months to get the modern home repaired, and the gas furnace upgraded, but he never moved back. His kid moved his in with her, where he didn’t need to worry about lack of heating, or forgetting to pay his bills.
