Today is the day that there are some people in Columbus,Ohio,I picture them all sitting around a big table, deciding my life. I hadn't said anything before,but right after John died I called the Police and Fire Pension Board in Columbus to tell them like I was supposed to. They told me that they'd send the packet to me that I needed to fill out,because he was disabled and his death was due to his disability. I got the packet,filled it out right away and sent it back with everything they wanted in July. During the summer I called them a few times to check on it,they'd always tell me that it takes awhile and I'll be contacted. In October I decided to call again. The guy on the phone said let me check,then he didn't say anything but hmmm, uh, hmmm, then I'm going to connect you with someone else. Well turns out that they didn't send me the right packet for the monthly death benefit that I'm supposed to get. I was devastated to say the least!!! I could have been waiting till cows flew and still trying to live on $513.99 a month before I would get the money. I called the president of the union and he told me that they really dropped the ball. They finally sent me the right packet and said I had to get it back to them before Oct. 17th or I would be missed for the Nov. 16th meeting. I had to have what they call a Host (he's a Fireman) come here to due all the paper work. I could have NEVER done it all on my own. He was here 2 1/2 hours as we worked on getting all the paper work together. He took it all home,faxed it to them AND mailed it,he said so that they couldn't say that they didn't receive it in time. He also added a very good letter that if you kinda read between the lines he said you better give this to her after what you put her through. While he was here, he asked me,"do you know what a pension is?" I kinda just looked at him blankly,I didn't know what to say. He said a pension is an insurance policy and insurance companies DON'T want to pay you!!! I'm not worried,it's the truth that John's death was way to soon caused by being in that back draft and his retirement years were very very hard for both of us. So they owe me. And as the Host Fireman said,they need to make me whole again. That's really not possible since John's gone now,but they at least need to pay me enough to live on.
Thanks for all the kind words and caring that you send me. It means so much to me cause I'm so alone and sad. But I keep workin'!!! Thank You God for that ability!!!
