Di Southwick's husband Larry, also known as Brandric Rockslayer in the Society for Creative Anachronism, died suddenly on May 1, 2017 -- twenty days before their second wedding anniversary. Dianne is 47 years old; he was 55. She's been unable to work since early 2016 and was in the hospital herself in April. She applied for Disability a year ago, and was of course denied on the first round. She obtained an attorney and a date for a "fair hearing", which she was granted in July of 2018. If she wins her disability case she can receive a widow's benefit from Social Security, about half of what he was receiving. Larry left her with wonderful collections of movies, books, and "et ceteras" -- but very little life insurance. There is some equity in the house, not enough to cover important repairs it needs, and yes there is a mortgage. I'm her housemate Dori, retired and disabled myself. Do enjoy some great deals and help us to declutter and pay the bills!
