It was 13 degree's when I woke up, but I didn't know if I was freezing or burning up. My health has been so severely effected by the inhumane living conditions and stress that it's draining me trying to keep going.
Before 9 am I had become so ill it was all I could do to crawl back into bed and pray to die in my sleep. I slept through the entire day, not waking up for any length of time until after 6 pm.
My cell phone kept ringing. Worried friends fearing that my health had turned critical. Friends who fear that my being homeless is going to kill me, but no-one has the funds to restore what Robert Huckins stole. Friends who have tried everything to get me a home, and all has failed for lack of funds.
Being ill inside a shed isn't like being inside a home. The bitter cold is unrelenting. The mold and mildew becomes impossible to get away from. Clean and comfort isn't a luxury you can afford.
People have no idea what homelessness means until they have tasted the bitter fruit.
A society that can stand by and watch so many homeless people, and not be motivated into action to resolve a problem, is one without heart or conscience.
-dignity makes a person irreplaceableAs the temperature dropped back into the upper teens tonight I am still wearing the hoodies I was wearing Monday morning.. it is far too cold to take them off even though they are beyond filthy. And still, not a word about Gracie and her absence is worrying me to distraction.
There has to be someone related to Robert &Sylve Huckins must have some means to reach them, if it be Michael Huckins, Dr.Kenneth Ogilvie ( Diana Huckins? Dominic Huckins? Malcolm Huckins? ) or Patricia Ogilvie-Huckins and get them to return ALL of the money they stole from us so that I can buy a home and get our lives back. I am begging anyone in this family for help. Begging for MERCY.
I don't believe I have EVER witnessed any none violent crime that can be as devastating as stealing someone's home. I am walking in Dorothy McKeevers footsteps, day by day, month by month, year by year.
Liam Griffin, I sat in your law office with two witnesses as you gave me your promise, your guarantee, that our money would be returned before harm came to us.
Patricia Ogilvie-Huckins you were present the day I signed contract with your son. You walked out of the kitchen with Sylve Huckins and your son introduced me to you. He told you that I was the British horse trainer he had told you about, the one he was going to build the home and barn for. Why didn't you say something? There may be a rational and reasonable explanation but I have spent over 3 years, homeless, not understanding it. I understand it even less knowing that though I was a total stranger, both Dorothy McKeever and Sally Canning you KNEW, and you knew what your son had done to them and others.
Dr. Kenneth Ogilvie, I contacted you and simply asked for a reference, not knowing that Robert Huckins was your cousin. Robert Huckins had just stolen over $30,000 from the domestic violence shelter, HEAL, yet everyone was trying to hide it. There was a history of stealing large amounts of money. $65,000 PLUS from Nancy Canning. $89,000 PLUS from Dorothy McKeever, $45,000 from Francis McKinney. The list just goes on and on and on.
Because of Robert Huckins I ended up paying $140,000 to be homeless.. sat in the cold, emotionally, physically and financially broke. In the middle of a recession, with no way to recover the stolen funds.
Today Robert Huckins has his own home...
He also has OUR home.....
He also has a lot of people's money...
And his freedom.
Women are not banks or loan institutions. Women should not be the source of a retirement fund for people who don't want to do an honest day's work for an honest day's pay. Holding women hostage while playing with the judicial system, a horrendous game of cat and mouse extending YEARS, with the victims whose very homes, families and stability are in jeopardy is cruelty, as cruel as a physical beating. It is financial and emotional RAPE. Homelessness is not justice. It is a slow, painful death.
Please, I beg with everything I have within me, please convince Robert Huckins to stop this torture and return the building fund he stole from us so we too, can have a home.
